Booker, Lonegan To Debate Today [LIVE VIDEO]
US Senate candidates Steve Lonegan (R) and Cory Booker (D) will face off in their first debate of the campaign in Trenton.
A live video stream of the debate as it’s recorded on Friday will also be available.
The debate comes as polls show Booker’s lead over Steve Lonegan is shrinking. The latest Quinnipiac University poll has the mayor of Newark leading Lonegan by just 12 points. Over the summer, Booker had a 16 point lead over Lonegan, a conservative who led the New Jersey chapter of Americans For Prosperity.
This past week Lonegan received the endorsement of Texas Governor Rick Perry and Sarah Palin. Vice President Joe Biden will campaign for Booker on October 11.
