LONG BRANCH - Chelsea Clinton paid a visit to the Jersey Shore Tuesday to campaign for her mother ahead of the New Jersey primary.

The former first daughter made two stops in Monmouth County; a town hall at Charley’s Grill in Long Branch and the opening of the Hillary for New Jersey campaign headquarters in Hazlet.

While at the town hall meeting, Chelsea Clinton talked about her mother’s plans for early preschool education, gun control and women’s rights.

She also spent time criticizing Republican candidate Donald Trump.

"I think we all have a responsibility candidly to talk about Mr. Trump and we have responsibility to stand up every day to his hate speech and his bigoted policies that flow from that, whether it's to build a wall around our country or keep a list of Muslims or have discriminatory policing of certain neighborhoods,” she said.

Hillary Clinton’s opponent on the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders, was campaigning in California Tuesday, with several events scheduled for the next few days.

Donald Trump will campaign in New Jersey Thursday at an event in Lawrenceville with Gov. Chris Christie. 

New Jersey’s primary is June 7.
