SALT LAKE CITY – Hillary Clinton is making a push in the red state of Utah.

Her campaign opened its first office in Salt Lake City Wednesday, and the Democratic front-runner also picked up the endorsement of Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski.

It’s all eyes on March 22nd for Clinton’s campaign staff. Democratic caucuses will take place across the state, and it's an opportunity for the presidential hopeful to pick up crucial votes.

“We have folks coming into our office making phone calls, we have volunteers across the state making sure people know where their caucus location is,” said Rebecca Lipson, State Director of Hillary for Utah.

The Beehive State almost always votes red for the Republican candidate in the general election, but Clinton supporters including, Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, says Utah voters could play a big role in this election.

“I find it interesting that the political candidates are not leaving Utah out at all," she said. "The GOP is hosting a debate here. Bernie Sanders is working here and so is Hillary."

Clinton nearly wrapped up the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party on Super Tuesday, a signal to her supporters that perhaps even Utah could give her a second glance.

“This campaign is about breaking down barriers and making sure everyone has the chance to live up to their God-given potential,” Lipson said.

“You gotta get out," Biskupski said. "Go to your caucus meeting. Become a delegate."
