Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders Close Out California Campaigns

The state holds its nominating contest on Tuesday, along with five others.

Sanders shifted from his insistence that he will carry on to the convention, instead making it clear that he will reassess his options after tomorrow.

“After the primary here in California, where we hope to win, let's assess where we are after tomorrow before we make statements based on speculation,” Sanders said during a press conference in Emeryville, California.

“We’ll be taking a plane back to Burlington and certainly will be campaigning in D.C.,” he said.

For her part, Clinton spent part of Tuesday looking far ahead.

Clinton noted it was “really emotional” to see her supporters’ belief that “having a woman president will make a great statement.”

“I am someone who has been very touched and really encouraged by this extraordinary conviction that people have,” she told her press corps in Compton, California, today.

“I think that Donald Trump is unqualified to be president and he is temperamentally unfit to be commander-in-chief,” she said. “I believe that with all my heart, and if I weren’t running, even if I weren’t about to become the nominee, I would be making a case against Donald Trump.”
