Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton make stops in NJ this week
Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton will be making stops in New Jersey this week ahead of the state's June 7 primaries.
With Donald Trump's Republican Party nomination all but assured after his remaining opponents dropped out earlier this week, the state's votes will matter more for the two Democratic candidates.
A Sanders rally is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway.
Sanders will speak at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Monday. Doors will open at the Historic Adrian Phillips Ballroom at 7:30 a.m.
Clinton also is scheduled to stop in the Garden State on Wednesday. Details of her visit to Camden had not yet been released by Saturday.
According to a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released last month, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to lead Sanders in New Jersey. But for the first time, the Vermont senator has closed the gap to single digits: 51 percent for Clinton and 42 percent for Sanders.
Trump will be in Lawrenceville next week to raise money for the state GOP and to help pay off Gov. Chris Christie's presidential campaign debt. Christie endorsed trump after dropping out.
