CRANFORD – Former President Bill Clinton is planning to visit New Jersey on Saturday to campaign with Assemblywoman Linda Stender.

Stender is seeking the U.S. House seat representing New Jersey’s 7th District, which includes parts of Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset, and Union counties. U.S. Rep. Mike Ferguson (R-New Providence) currently holds the seat, but he announced last year that he would step down at the end of his current term.

Republican state Sen. Leonard Lance is challenging Stender in one of the most closely-watched congressional races in the country.

Clinton is scheduled to appear with Stender at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday at Union County College, Commons Area, 1033 Springfield Avenue.
