Booker resumes campaign after father's passing; will be in Plainfield today


Booker resumed campaigning Saturday, after his father's passing.

 
NOTE: US Senate Candidate Cory Booker resumed his campaign schedule Saturday that will include today's Plainfield event on a four-day bus tour. Booker's father, Cary Booker, died on Thursday.

Plainfield's Democrats will rally for U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker and the slate of candidates for office in Union County on Sunday, October 13, at 4:00 PM.

Booker, who has almost rock-star popularity, will join the Union County slate to rev up the ground troops for Wednesday's special election in which he faces off against wing-nut Steve Lonegan.

Lonegan, the former mayor of Bogota and a Tea Party leader, has been busy during the current campaign painting himself as less radical than he has been to this point.

Appearing with Booker will be Union County candidates, including Plainfield's own Linda Carter, who is running for re-election to the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Plainfield's Democratic headquarters is on West Front Street near Park Avenue (next door to Dunkin' Donuts). Parking available on the street or in the county parking lot on East Second Street.
