Booker, Lonegan Make Last Push to Get Out the Vote

New Jersey's Senate candidates hit the road Tuesday in a final push to ask for voters' support and just as importantly, to remind them that the special election is Wednesday. 

Both candidates are focusing mostly on turning out their bases as they make their last appeals to voters one day before New Jersey's special U.S. Senate election

Republican Steve Lonegan is campaigning Tuesday in Basking Ridge, Flemington, Belvidere, Morristown and Middletown -- all places where Republicans usually get the most votes. He's also stopping in Jersey City.

Democrat Cory Booker is hitting the Democrat-favoring communities of Belleville, New Brunswick, Hoboken and Newark, where he is mayor. He also has a stop in Little Falls.

Besides asking for votes, both candidates are reminding voters that the special election is on Wednesday, a day when polls usually are not open.

The winner will serve the remaining 15 months of the late Frank Lautenberg's term in the Senate.

Recent polls have Booker with a double-digit lead heading into the election.
