Biden campaign stop for Cory Booker canceled

Booker's campaign announced Tuesday that the vice president will not appear at a Friday event for the candidate in New Jersey.

Biden had planned to make a stop in the state to help boost Booker's campaign just five days before Election Day. Though the Democrat is still favored in the special election to replace deceased Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), multiple polls in recent weeks have shown his Republican opponent, Steve Lonegan, to be closer than expected.
