New Jersey Senate Primary: Jeff Bell Wins Republican Nomination

New Jersey Republicans have selected GOP operative Jeff Bell to challenge Cory Booker for his U.S. Senate seat, the Associated Press reports.

Bell, a former aide to Ronald Reagan, defeated three other Republicans to secure the nomination. He will face off against Booker, who was elected to the seat last fall in a special election to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D).

Booker had no competition in Tuesday's primary.
