A hoarse, fired-up Newark Mayor Cory Booker continued a bus tour of the state as the special U.S. Senate election approaches.
 
Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez joined Booker Sunday.

  Booker told a crowd at the annual Bergen and Passaic Counties Hispanic Rally that New Jersey voters have a special opportunity by voting during the government shutdown.
 
Booker says New Jersey voters can "endorse the tea party and their shutdown politics'' or say, "No, not here in New Jersey, not in this nation.''
 
Wasserman-Schultz says voters should help make sure the tea party is "squelched.''
 
Booker will face Republican Steve Lonegan, who was endorsed Saturday by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express.
 
Booker has a double-digit lead over Lonegan in the polls heading into this week's election.
