>> Hillary Clinton getting a key endorsement in California Tuesday, from someone who hasn't necessarily been a friend of the family. Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, who fell to Bill Clinton in the 92 presidential primary, leading his call to support her not with praise but with fear. I believe this is the only path forward to win the presidency and stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump, he wrote.
In this open letter to the state's democrats and independents, who can vote for any party in California. Clinton is about to start spending a lot more time here, ahead of the state's June 7th primary. Canceling appearances in New Jersey, to avoid an embarrassing primary loss to Bernie Sanders.
The senator from Vermont has spent recent weeks barnstorming across the state, where he's getting a surprising amount of traction. And while her super delegate advantage means she's likely to clinch the nomination before polls even close here next Tuesday, Sanders is rallying supporters around the idea that a win here, could give him the momentum to bring some of those super-delegates to his side.
He's quick to repeat that he polls better in a match-up against Trump, than the former First Lady does. As for who's better positioned here Clinton or Sanders, flip a coin. Last week, a poll showed them neck and neck, while the Hoover Institution Golden State poll out Tuesday, found Clinton has a sizable 51/38 lead.
