Chelsea Clinton will head to NJ Tuesday for Hillary campaign
Days after Bill Clinton visited New Jersey to campaign for his wife Hillary, another member of the Clinton family will be heading to the Garden State this week.
On Tuesday, Chelsea Clinton will head to Long Branch at noon and Hazlet at 2 p.m. to campaign for her mother ahead of the June 7 Democratic primary, according to the "America for Hillary" campaign.
"At events, she will ask New Jerseyans for their support and urge them to go out and vote for Hillary Clinton. She will also discuss why her mom is the best candidate to raise incomes for New Jersey families, to improve education, and to break down the barriers that hold too many Americans back," according to a statement by Clinton's campaign.
On Friday, Former President Bill Clinton visited Passaic County Community College in Paterson and The College of New Jersey in Ewing. Similar to President Barack Obama's commencement address at Rutgers Sunday, Clinton took jabs at GOP candidate Donald Trump, but didn't mention his name.
According to NJ Advance Media, Clinton told New Jerseyans about a conversation he had with "disappointed voters who booed" during a campaign stop in West Virginia.
"I said, 'If you believe things should be made as they once were — which is essentially, "Make America Great Again" — remember this: It wasn't so great for a lot of people the way things once were,'" Clinton said, according to the article.
With Donald Trump likely to win the Republican spot on the November ballot, New Jersey’s June 7 primary will likely be an exclusively Democratic contest.
Clinton’s opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, drew tens of thousands of supporters last week when he visited Piscataway and Atlantic City for campaign rallies.
