TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley says Cory Booker’s experience as mayor of Newark would be a big advantage in Washington.

O’Malley is campaigning for Booker throughout the day in New Jersey.

The U.S. Senate candidate will meet up with O’Malley after a debate Thursday night in Newark.

The Maryland governor, meanwhile, is attending campaign events in Trenton and Paterson. He endorsed Booker in June.

O’Malley, who is considering a 2016 presidential run, is the finance chairman for the Democratic Governors Association.

He deflected questions about his own political aspirations while promoting Booker at a senior housing complex in Trenton.
