Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is scheduled to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Steve Lonegan Saturday in New Jersey.

Lonegan, the former mayor of Bogota is facing off against Newark Mayor Cory Booker in a special election next Wednesday to fill the vacant seat of the late Frank Lautenberg.

The Democrat leads Lonegan by double digit margins in most polls, but his lead has shrunk in recent days, and a recent internal Lonegan campaign poll has him only 3 points behind.

Palin is set to appear at a Tea Party Express rally in New Egypt, N.J., along with conservative talk radio host Mark Levin, Politico reports.

Lonegan also has garnered support from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

In her endorsement of Lonegan last week, Palin contrasted his work as mayor of Bogota to Booker's performance in Newark.

"During one mayor’s tenure, his town’s unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased," the former 2008 vice presidential nominee said of Booker's time as Newark's chief executive.

As for Lonegan, she said he "cut wasteful spending," while running Bogota, "eliminated wasteful services, stabilized taxes, and reduced debt."

"He understands that government is too often the problem, not the solution," Palin said.
