Democratic Senate nominee Doug Jones and his allies are finalizing plans to bring in several high-profile current or former African American elected officials, including Sen. Cory Booker, to campaign for him this weekend in Alabama as he wages an aggressive final push to turn out black voters in a Tuesday special election with national stakes.

Rep. Terri A. Sewell (D-Ala.) has been leading the effort to organize a slate of Sunday campaign events including a rally in Birmingham that is expected include her, Jones, Booker (D-N.J.) and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), according to Sewell spokesman, Chris MacKenzie and a Jones campaign official.

A third Democrat who was familiar with Booker’s plans confirmed that he intends to campaign for Jones in Alabama.
