Two Generations: The Newark Mayoral Election

In two separate interviews, Tavis Smiley speaks to the candidates running for mayor of Newark, New Jersey, in tomorrow's election. In the first interview, Smiley speaks to the challenger, 33-year-old city councilman Cory Booker, about what he sees as new era of black leadership. In the second conversation, Smiley talks to incumbent Mayor Sharpe James about his achievements in Newark and why he feels he's still the right man to run city hall.
