Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will spend the day campaigning for a New Jersey senate candidate.

O'Malley is scheduled to attend several events today in the Garden State with Newark Mayor Cory Booker.  Booker is looking to take the Democratic nomination in a special primary election next week to replace Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died earlier this year while in office at the age of 89

The Maryland governor is scheduled to speak to a group of senior citizens in Trenton and attend a barbecue in Paterson before heading to kick off a bus tour this evening with Booker after a debate.

O'Malley endorsed Booker's campaign in June.

O'Malley currently serves as the finance chairman for the Democratic Governors Association after previously serving as its chairman, and has his own political action committee.
