Trump, Clinton win Washington state's presidential primaries

Trump, Clinton win Washington state's presidential primaries

"We believe that Hillary Clinton's time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands", Palmieri said.

Bernie Sanders predicted Monday that the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia could be "messy" as he pushed the party to adopt his progressive agenda, but added, "Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle".

Clinton didn't mention Sanders by name during her rally.

After months of attacks by Democrats aimed at down-ballot Republicans over Donald Trump's uncomfortable and controversial rise through the party's ranks, the GOP is attempting to reverse the playbook.

Sanders is vying for support ahead of California's June 7 primary, a day that also includes contests in Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Clinton leads Sanders by 271 pledged delegates, a lead that grows to more than 760 delegates with the addition of superdelegates - party officials and elected leaders who can support the candidate of their choice.

On Monday, he repeated some of his criticisms of Clinton, whom he has suggested is vulnerable to influence by corporate donors to her campaign, which she denies.

But the pitch went like this: Clinton and Sanders "will reach a vast number of viewers - many of whom are certainly open to persuasion - just as we pivot to the general election". Bernie Sanders' campaign is mining deep into voter data from Hispanic enclaves, scouting for hidden supporters in an effort to undercut Hillary Clinton in a contest that he has vowed to fight to the end.

Trump arrived in Southern California as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders continued to crisscross the region.

When she was in the Bluegrass State over the weekend, speaking with voters in the Cincinnati suburbs Sunday, Clinton said the former president would be "in charge of the economy" if she was president. Sanders' has recently been embroiled in a tense back and forth with the DNC to secure more representation on this critically important committee.

Trump is the last Republican standing in the presidential race - but that doesn't mean he's without opposition in Washington.

But now Fox's executives can say they tried - and its conservative-leaning hosts and commentators can criticize Clinton for the snub.

"Because, you know, he knows how to do it. Especially in places like coal country and inner-cities and other parts of our country that have really been left out", she said.

The Clintons' lawyer, David Kendall, said in 1999 that the accusation was false.

He declined to entertain the possibility of being considered as Clinton's running mate, saying he was focused on winning the nomination. "He could bankrupt America like he bankrupted his companies".
