EDISON - As the race for the U.S. Senate seat heats up in New Jersey, a new poll finds that 64 percent of likely voters say they support Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

The Rutgers-Eagleton poll also shows that 29 percent support Republican challenger, Steve Lonegan.

Political experts say this special election, which is less than five weeks away, could see an all-time low voter turnout.

Meanwhile, Booker and Lonegan continue to receive endorsements for their campaigns. Booker was endorsed by the Sierra Club yesterday, and this Friday, Lonegan is scheduled to campaign with Kentucky Senator and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul.
