Chica­go May­or Rahm Emanuel (D) and Jer­sey City May­or Steve Fu­lop (D) were sched­uled to head­line a rally for Ne­wark May­or Cory Book­er (D) on Fri­day, but the event has been can­celled “fol­low­ing news of 14 people shot” in Chica­go on Thursday night.

Tell him to please let me know when. I’ll be there to high­light his dis­grace­ful, failed policies.”

Loneg­an also said: “Rahm Emanuel should keep his failed policies in Chica­go. Cory Book­er is do­ing bad enough without him.”

Book­er wasn’t sched­uled to at­tend the Emanuel event. The Demo­crat is at­tend­ing a fun­draiser for his cam­paign in San Fran­cisco on Fri­day. (Politick­

CHRISTIE HEAD­LINES LONEG­AN FUN­DRAISER: Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Thursday night head­lined a fun­draiser for former Bogota May­or Steve Loneg­an’s (R) cam­paign. (Ber­gen Re­cord)

GET­TING TO KNOW YOU: Book­er “spent Tues­day in meet­ings with Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Lead­er Harry Re­id and oth­er Demo­crat­ic lead­er­ship mem­bers. … The meet­ings were fairly routine, sources said, with up­dates on the cam­paign. But they also looked to­ward the fu­ture as polls show Book­er cruis­ing to­ward vic­tory over Loneg­an in the heav­ily Demo­crat­ic state.” (Politico)
