MONTCLAIR, N.J. (AP) — All four Democrats running for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey are scheduled to debate for the first time.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Rep. Rush Holt, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver and Rep. Frank Pallone are all scheduled to be at Montclair State University on Monday night for a debate that is scheduled to be shown live on NJTV.
Booker has eschewed earlier forums that his opponents have attended.
The four are on the Aug. 13 primary ballot, and the winner will face Republican Alieta Eck or Steve Lonegan in an Oct. 16 special general election.
The winner of that contest will fill the remaining 15 months of the term of late Sen. Frank Lautenberg.
