Making his first campaign visits to New Jersey, Bernie Sanders will attend a rally in New Brunswick on Sunday evening followed by another stop in Atlantic City on Monday.
Sanders is running for the Democratic presidential nomination against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has been unable to lock up her party’s endorsement despite what appeared to be insurmountable support going into the contest. Clinton also failed to achieve victory among Democrats in 2008, when she was stopped by President Barack Obama. then a first term US senator.
Sanders has been in Congress since the 1990s and he previously served as mayor of Burlington, Vt.
He has won 18 primary contests against Clinton, so far, and intends to continue his campaign in the weeks leading up to voting in New Jersey and the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer.
