January 23, 2008 8:12:49 AM PST
Senator Hillary Clinton will be bringing her campaign for the White House to the area today.

The democratic candidate will be stopping in Philadelphia early this afternoon before heading to New Jersey where she is hosting rallies in Hackensack and North Bergen late today.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University-PublicMind poll released yesterday shows Clinton leads all candidates of both parties with 25 percent of voters' support in New Jersey.

Illinois Senator and fellow Democrat Barack Obama was next, with 18 percent, while Arizona Senator John McCain picked up 10 percent and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had 8 percent.

However, when asked which of the potential presidential nominees they were least likely to support in November, Clinton topped the list again, this time with 27 percent. Giuliani was second with 17 percent.

We'll have complete coverage of Clinton's visit to the area on Action News at 5:00.
