Booker's Campaign Trail - My9 New Jersey

Booker's Campaign Trail

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The special senate election is today, and Cory Booker has been hitting the campaign trail hard in preparation for the election.

He made seven North Jersey campaign stops on Tuesday alone. Booker started off in a Union Hall Food and Commercial, where workers said they would go out and vote for him. Then he went to Rutgers University, to mobilize young people. Later he headed off to a group of seniors back in Newark. Booker is focusing on who he thinks is his base voters, those who will actually get out, vote for him, and make a difference in the election.

Both Booker and his opponent Steve Lonegan are focusing on rallying their bases. It seems like it will be an all turn out election and the candidates are paying attention to those who have already shown support for them.

Lonegan and Booker have been seen as polar opposites with no middle ground, and if someone likes one candidate then they think the other candidate is way off base. The candidates are hoping that going around to people who already support them will generate enough energy to win.
