    Cory Booker's experience as mayor of Newark, N.J., would be a big advantage in Washington, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said.

    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.
