New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker to fundraise for Patrick Murphy

When New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker comes to South Florida later this month to rally Florida Democrats ahead of this year's election, there's one Democrat in particular he'll be supporting.

Booker will help raise money for Patrick Murphy's U.S. Senate campaign, according to an invitation to a lunchtime reception at the posh Smith & Wollensky steakhouse on South Beach. Later that same day, Booker will be the featured speaker at the Florida Democratic Party's annual gala in Hollywood.

The invitation from the "Patrick Murphy Victory Fund" requests donations ranging from $500 to $5,400 per person, with a maximum contribution of $15,400.

Murphy, a Jupiter congressman, is running against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson of Orlando.
