>> Let's be the people that we know we can be.>> Hillary Clinton, hoping voters in Kentucky put an end to her recent primary losing streak on Tuesday as she tries to lock up the democratic nomination and end a bruising battle with Bernie Sanders.>> Let's be on the American team.
00:00:16
>> Reporter Emily Stevenson says Kentucky could be the place for Clinton's luck to change.>> Democrats, they're are more moderate and less inclined to support Sanders and she clearly thinks that she can motivate people in those parts of the state. She did not put as much effort into some of the previous states that Sanders has won.
00:00:35
The Clinton campaign had kind of written some of these states off. Kentucky clearly is a place where she thinks that she can kind of shift this momentum.>> Kentucky is her best chance after recent losses to the Vermont senator in states such as Indiana and West Virginia. And with Sanders also looking strong in Tuesday's other contest in Oregon.
00:00:52
>> It is now Wall Street's time to help the working families of this country.>> Clinton still maintains a solid lead in the delegate count but Sanders is raising doubts that she will be able to unite the party once he leaves the race.>> The longer Sanders stays in the race and says negative things about Clinton and talks about ties to Wall Street and not taking money from big companies etcetera, the more likely it is that his supporters get really frustrated with her and don't wanna vote for her in November.
00:01:20
And Democratic strategists are worried that if she doesn't start to build a lead and look like the presumptive Democratic nominee, then it's gonna be really hard for those Sanders people to get over their frustrations with Clinton.>> Tensions between the two camps boiled over in Nevada over the weekend at the Democrat State Convention after leaders labeled dozens of Sanders delegates ineligible, resulting in shouting, shoving, and threats towards the state party chair.
