    (CNN) — New Jersey Senate hopeful Cory Booker’s father has died, his campaign said Thursday.

    Cary Booker, 76, had recently suffered a stroke. He died in Las Vegas, the Booker campaign said in a statement. Booker’s remaining campaign events were canceled for the day.

    Booker, the Democratic mayor of Newark, New Jersey, faces off next week against Republican Steve Lonegan in a special election next week to fill out the rest of the late Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s term.
