NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Cory Booker took a break from his presidential campaign Thursday to report to jury duty in Newark.

Fellow jurors at the Essex County courthouse tweeted selfies with the senator, and he posted a video from the juror's room, in which he got the entire room to shout "Happy Birthday" to a fellow juror.

"This is the best jury room in all of America," Booker enthusiastically says in the video

Booker lives in downtown Newark, about a mile from the courthouse.
