Hillary Clinton this week aims to corral the final delegates needed to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination after a long struggle with Bernie Sanders. Linda So reports.
Hillary Clinton is looking to seal the deal this week. After a long struggle with Bernie Sanders, Clinton aims to secure the final delegates needed to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination. Her overwhelming win in Puerto Rico on Sunday puts the front-runner one step closer to that goal. Voters in six states, including delegate-rich California, will head to the polls on Tuesday. The latest show Clinton in a dead heat with Sanders in California. But despite the close match-up, Clinton is focusing on Donald Trump, her likely opponent in the general election. SOUNDBITE: DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON, SAYING: "I'm going to point out at every single moment why the Republican nominee should never get near the White House." Clinton needs just 26 delegates to clinch the party's nomination. But her opponent isn't backing down. SOUNDBITE: DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "If we are deadly serious as we must be in making sure that a disaster like trump never becomes president we are the strongest candidate to defeat him." While the Democrats focus on Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee is on the defensive. His recents comments about the Mexican heritage of a judge overseeing fraud lawsuits against Trump University are drawing heat. On Sunday, Trump hired a new national political director. His campaign says its working to beef up its communications team.
