The Pascrell campaign announced the visit Friday, but did not immediately provide details.
Clinton endorsed Pascrell over fellow Democrat Rep. Steve Rothman May 4. Rothman, a former Englewood mayor, campaigned for President Obama in 2008, while Pascrell supported then-challenger Hillary Clinton.

Rothman and Pascrell have been engaged in a bitter inter-party fight for thenewly drawn 9th district.
