Senator Barak Obama's victory in the Iowa caucuses may have surprised some but early Obama supporters like Newark's Mayor Cory Booker says he was expecting it.

BOOKER: We've got a lot of people around America from pundits to political professionals really underestimate the American electorate and underestimate the people of Iowa in particular."

HOST: Booker is one of Obama's handful of supporters in New Jersey, since most of the state's democratic party is behind New York Senator Hillary Clinton. That includes Governor Corzine, who's flying to Las Vegas tonight to campaign tomorrow for Clinton, in advance of Nevada's January 19th caucuses.

Meanwhile, in Camden, Paterson, Jersey City, Trenton, Edison and Newark, Obama rallies are planned for this weekend.
