TRENTON, N.J. - Republican Steve Lonegan and Democrat Cory Booker will have company on the special U.S. Senate ballot Oct. 16.

Six independent and minor-party candidates filed papers to run. All are men.

Robert DePasquale, of Butler, is running on an anti-immigration platform. Stuart David Meissner, of Dumont, is focusing on overhauling alimony laws. Edward Stackhouse Jr., of Hamilton Square, has the slogan, "Ed the Barber."

The other three candidates' policy priorities aren't clear from their slogans. The candidates are Eugene Lavergne, of West Long Branch; Pablo Olivera, of Newark; and Antonio Sabas, of Irvington.

The winner will fill the final 15 months of the term of Frank Lautenberg, who died at 89 in June.
