BLACKWOOD - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton campaigned in New Jersey Wednesday ahead of next month's primary.

Clinton spoke at Camden County College in Blackwood. It was her first official campaign stop in the Garden State. So many people turned out for the event, that not everyone was able to fit into the gymnasium.

Clinton's visit comes after Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders campaigned this week in Atlantic City and at Rutgers University.

Clinton leads in the Democratic delegate count with 2,228, compared with Sanders' 1,454. The winner must get 2,383 delegates to claim the nomination.

There are 142 delegates at stake in New Jersey. Polls have shown that Clinton leads Sanders in the state.

New Jersey’s primary is on June 7.

Bill and Chelsea Clinton are expected to campaign in New Jersey later this week.
