>> Bernie Sanders pulling out all the stops in hopes of pulling off a win in California, ahead of that state's primary on Tuesday. The final sprint in what is now the longest of long shot campaigns for the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders supporters giddy after polls showing he's closed the gap with Hillary Clinton in California.
00:00:22
Reporter Jim Alfont is watching the final run up.>> So what's Bernie Sanders up to? He knows in his heart of hearts. He's not going to be the democratic nominee for President. So what this is about, is just extracting as much leverage as possible from the situation. He wants concessions from the Clinton campaign, he wants concessions from the democratic party.
00:00:40
He wants to affect the party's agenda going forward. Heck, he might even want to have a say in Clinton's choice as a Vice Presidential nominee. So for him, the end game is keeping the influence that he has built up.>> Clinton holding a dominant lead over Sanders in the all important delegate count, and with five states voting Tuesday, is expected to lock up the party's nomination even without California's results.
00:01:04
Clinton on Friday trying to look past Sanders, blasting her likely opponent in the general election.>> And I believe, absolutely, that he’s not only unprepared to be President, he is temperamentally unfit to be President.>>
APPLAUSE
>> She needs to look like someone who is a success. I mean, Trump's whole thing is about being a winner, right?
00:01:23
So Clinton also has to look like a winner. I wouldn't be surprised if on Tuesday we see Clinton in New Jersey, claiming victory, claiming the nomination, and pretending that the California primary isn't going to happen. And sort of trying to convince voters on the east coast that she's won and they don't have to pay attention anymore.
00:01:40
>> But, actions speak louder. Clinton to spend every waking hour over the weekend roaming the Golden State for votes. After all, Californians will have the last word on Tuesday.>> What you're doing.
