A day after Sarah Palin made a campaign stop for Steve Lonegan, a top national Democratic figure is joining Newark Mayor Cory Booker on his campaign tour as the special U.S. Senate election approaches.

Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez joined Booker Sunday.

Booker told a crowd at the annual Bergen and Passaic Counties Hispanic Rally that New Jersey voters have a special opportunity by voting during the government shutdown. Booker says New Jersey voters can “endorse the tea party and their shutdown politics” or say, “No, not here in New Jersey, not in this nation.”

Wasserman-Schultz says voters should help make sure the tea party is “squelched.”

Steve Lonegan  appeared at the Million Vet March at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial on the grounds of the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. According to the Lakewood Scoop Facebook pagehe also made a stop in Lakewood.

Booker is facing former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan in Wednesday’s special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat of the late Frank Lautenberg. Lonegan trails Booker in the polls.

On Saturday he campaigned with former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin and talk show host Mark Levin at New Egypt Speedway who spoke in front of 2,000.
