After weekend wins, Clinton on cusp of Democratic nomination

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Hillary Clinton stands on the cusp of having enough delegates to claim the Democratic presidential nomination, having overwhelmed Bernie Sanders in a pair of weekend elections in the Caribbean.

Yet the former secretary of state barely noted her commanding wins Saturday in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Sunday in Puerto Rico, instead remaining focused on Tuesday’s contest in California and five other states — and and eventually a matchup against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Clinton told a California rally, “We’re going to have a very contentious campaign because I’m going to point out at every single moment that I can why I believe the Republican nominee should never get near the White House.”

Clinton said she wants to “finish strong in California. It means the world to me.”
