‘House of Cards’ star fundraises for Cory Booker

Actress Kate Mara, who plays dogged reporter Zoe Barnes in the political drama ‘House of Cards’, attended a fundraiser for Newark Mayor Cory Booker on April 1.

Booker is allegedly contemplating a run for New Jersey’s Senate seat. Current Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) recently announced his retirement.

Politico reports that the reception took place in Washington D.C. and was for a potential Senate run. Tickets ranged from $40 to $100 and 300 people were expected to attend, according to U.S. News and World Report.
