As a powerful nor'easter pounds the Tri-State area, on Wednesday evening Cory Booker weathered the storm and made his way to the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studio for a live primetime interview.
On the heels of Superstorm Sandy the Newark, New Jersey Mayor characterized the recent bouts of extreme conditions as "Mother Nature's one-two punch," which is "testing the resolve and the grit of my state and my city and obviously this region."
Citing 25,000 people still without power, the Garden State politician admitted that challenges lie ahead:
"This is going to take continuous pulling together, standing together, and fighting together, because this has just been a brutal 10-day stretch for this metropolitan region."

On the heels of Barack Obama securing a second term as President of the United States, on Wednesday "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes David Axelrod for his unique insight and perspective from the winning side.
Joining Piers Morgan for a primetime exclusive, the campaign's senior strategist reveals the very first phone call the incumbent placed after securing victory:
"As he said to President [Bill] Clinton, he was the most valuable player in this campaign," said Axelrod, referencing the conversation between the two most-recent Democratic presidents. "He [Clinton] just campaigned his heart out because he believes there were two choices here, and one led us forward, and one led us back, and he was vey effective out there. So, there is a strong sense of gratitude, and I think the president is looking forward to calling on President Clinton, in the future, for advice, councel, and assistance, as we move this country forward."

With the 2012 general election officially in the books, and Barack Obama having secured another four years in the White House, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes a host of political insiders, analysts, and experts all tasked with sharing their perspective on what last night's result means for the future of the nation.
A staunch Obama supporter, and himself someone characterized as a rising star within the Democratic Party, Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker will join Piers Morgan for a live interview less than 24 hours after CNN officially projected the incumbent would retain his job.
For what will most certainly be a vastly different take on Tuesday, business executive and author Jack Welch will be on the program. Having appeared on the show multiple times in the past, the noted Mitt Romney advocate will present his opinion as to the financial future of the country with Obama in office for four more years.
And with various social issues serving as such hot-button topics on both sides of the aisle, how telling is it that the president comfortably captured the women's vote? Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and noted Republican strategist Kellyanne Conway will weigh in on everything from abortion rights to healthcare.
Tune in this evening at 9 as "Piers Morgan Tonight" puts a bow on the 2012 election and unwraps all the issues that will factor in to moving forward.
