Shutdown scraps Biden’s plans to stump for Cory Booker

Vice President Biden has canceled plans to travel to New Jersey to campaign for Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) due the government shutdown, Booker's campaign announced Tuesday.

The vice president had been slated to stump for the Senate front-runner on Friday.

Polls show Booker is favored to defeat Republican Steve Lonegan in the Oct. 16 special election.
