NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey-born rocker Jon Bon Jovi performed a brief acoustic set, including his hit "Can't Go Home," at a splashy post-primary campaign fund-raiser for Gov. Corzine last night.

The event at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center drew about 2,000 people and was expected to raise $2 million.

Bon Jovi and four bandmates took the stage just after 8 and played three songs.

Addressing the crowd, Bon Jovi said that politics can be a dirty business but that he believes Corzine got involved to make a difference.

Corzine, a former Goldman Sachs executive, is seeking a second term in November. He faces Republican Christopher J. Christie, a former U.S. attorney.
