BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is set to hit the campaign trail in New Jersey.

On Tuesday, Patrick will stump for Newark Mayor Cory Booker, a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate. Booker and Republican Steven Lonegan are vying to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in June.

Next Saturday, Patrick travels to Dallas to deliver the keynote address at the Texas Democratic Party’s Barbara Jordan Legacy Dinner.

Patrick is using money from his political action committee to pay for the trips.

Patrick formed the Together PAC, in 2011 to help pay for travels around the country campaigning on behalf of President Barack Obama .

Patrick said he now wants to “repurpose” his PAC to focus on supporting what he called “grassroots, conviction-based politics here in the commonwealth and elsewhere.”
