The program guide for the Phoenix Awards Dinner, held on Sept. 27, inexplicably lists the New Jersey Democrat as hailing from the Land of Lincoln.  

Could the CBCF be trying to position Booker to follow in the steps of that actual trailblazing Illinois Democrat who currently occupies the Oval Office?  

Are folks in #ThisTown so spellbound by the constantly on-the-go freshman lawmaker that nobody can be bothered to remember that he’s a Garden Stater?  

Perhaps the printer just screwed up.  

We’ll let you know where the CBCF plants him in next year’s booklet.
