New Jersey voters are heading to the polls to pick their party's candidates in 12 U.S. House races and to have their voices heard in a set of presidential primaries that appear to have already been wrapped up.  Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has already sewed up the number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination. An Associated Press count Monday found that Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to secure her party's nomination. The state's closed primary is among the last contests before this summer's party conventions. Polls in New Jersey are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.  Voters also will be picking their party's standard bearers in U.S. House races. There are no Senate contests in the state this year.
