Clinton, Obama plant roots in NJ ahead of primary

As the presidential election presses on, candidates are setting up shop in New Jersey ahead of the Feb. 5 state primary.

Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) have already opened offices in the Garden State. Obama?s office is in West Orange and Clinton opened an office in Trenton across the street from the New Jersey State House.

Supporters gathered at the new campaign offices to watch as the results of the Iowa caucuses came in Thursday night. Residents in support of Obama held more than 20 caucus-watching parties in New Jersey to root on their candidate.

The deadline to register to vote in the New Jersey primary is Jan. 15.
