Snapshots: Clinton reaches out to Sanders fans, GOP
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said she sees “a great role and opportunity” for Bernie Sanders and his supporters in a “unified party,” even as she said she welcomed Republicans who are not supporting presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
“Obviously I’m reaching out to Democrats, Republicans, independents, all voters who want a candidate who is running a campaign based on issues,” Clinton said in an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” broadcast on Sunday.
Clinton said she and Sanders have similar views on issues, including raising the minimum wage and reining “in bad actors on Wall Street and in corporate America.”
Asked about the high unfavorable ratings associated with both her and Trump, Clinton said she’s “not going to run an ugly race.”
Sanders math problem dire
Bernie Sanders netted more than two dozen delegates over Hillary Clinton in Washington state on Saturday after the party released vote data broken down by congressional district.
But his math remains dire.
Sanders’ steep path to 2,383 can only really end at the party’s convention in Philadelphia, where he intends to give superdelegates all his attention and make the case he is the better general election candidate.
To win, Sanders will need to dominate the final few primaries and then sway more than 300 superdelegates to his side. So far, he’s only convinced 39.
