(CNN) - With two weeks left until Election Day, and Jon Corzine fighting for his political life, the New Jersey governor gets a helping hand from another big-name surrogate Tuesday night.
Former President Bill Clinton teams up with Corzine at a campaign event at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. It's the second of three straight days of Democratic heavyweights on the trail with the New Jersey governor: on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden teamed up with Corzine in New Jersey for the second time this month. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama headlines a Corzine rally in the Garden State.
A new Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll suggests that Obama remains popular in the Garden State. The survey, released Tuesday, also indicates that Corzine is dead even with his Republican challenger, Chris Christie, the former federal prosecutor in New Jersey. Corzine, battling for his second term, trailed Christie over the summer - but just about every recent poll of likely New Jersey voters indicates that he's now pulled into a tie with Christie. The surveys also suggest that independent candidate Chris Daggett is making an impact, with support in the low double digits - more than enough to swing the race.
Christie gets some big-name help of his own next week. A source with the Christie campaign tells CNN that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will stand alongside the Republican challenger next week. Giuliani, along with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, have teamed up with Christie over the past few months.
For Clinton, the stops in New Jersey - he's also joined the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor candidate at a separate event - follow a visit to the gubernatorial campaign in Virginia. The former president lended a helping hand to Democrat Creigh Deeds, who trails Republican Bob McDonnell in recent polling in the battle for Virginia's governorship. The Democratic incumbent, Tim Kaine, who's also Democratic Party chairman, is term-limited and can't run for re-election.
A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national survey indicates that Clinton remains popular with most Americans. Nearly two-thirds of those questioned in the survey say they have a favorable opinion of the former president.
