TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) - In 15 days, the voters of New Jersey will select candidates for the senate seat vacated by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg.

In the Democratic field, New Jersey Assembly speaker Sheila Oliver is running against Corey Booker; and Congressmen Rush Holt and Frank Pallone feel that her statewide profile is a real plus.

“While Congresspersons Holt and Pallone have served districts, and Mayor Booker has served a city, as a legislative leader and speaker for the past four years, I’ve been in communities and counties from one end of the state to the other,” says Oliver.

Listen:


Assembly speaker Sheila Oliver and fellow candidate Rush Holt, the Congressman, join us Sunday night for the beginning of a series of profiles on the candidates for U.S. senate.

The primary election is August 13. The program is voice of reason Sunday on TCN at 9:30 p.m.
