Sen. Clinton stumps in the Garden StatePosted: Updated:
Presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) made a pair of campaign stops in New Jersey Wednesday.
The senator first received the endorsement of Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero at a rally in Hackensack. Clinton then appeared in North Bergen where she tried to woo the heavily Hispanic audience.
Clinton focused heavily on the economy in her Hackensack speech. She told voters she wants a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and help for families struggling to keep up with ballooning payments.
The senator's stop was in anticipation of New Jersey's Feb. 5 primary, where she'll try to grab a few more delegates to distance the gap in the race for the democratic nomination.
Clinton is not the first candidate to stop in the Garden State this election cycle. Her chief rival for the democratic nod, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), stumped for votes at a Jersey City rally two weeks ago.
