Here's your round-up of five stories we're following today:
1. Lautenberg funeral, special election: Vice President Joe Biden will eulogize Sen. Frank Lautenberg at a Manhattan funeral service this morning. The New Jersey Democrat died on Monday. Hillary Clinton and fellow New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez are also slated to speak. A ceremony at the Secaucus train station that bears Lautenberg's name is scheduled for this afternoon, and his casket will arrive at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, before Friday's burial at Arlington National Cemetery. Meanwhile, Gov. Christie has set an Aug. 13 primary and Oct. 16 general election for Lautenberg's seat.
3. N.J. governor's race turns to Christie-Buono: Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Democratic challenger state Sen. Barbara Buono won their respective primaries last night. After the low-profile primaries in which neither candidate faced an opponent who was a real threat, both sides are ramping up their general election campaigns.
