Hillary visited a senior center in Compton, California today and held a press gaggle in the process.  Asked about clinching, she said she wanted to “wait and see where we are after tomorrow.”  She did respond to a question about the history.

Many times she said, she has seen women in tears upon or just after meeting her.  We have seen accounts at the Facebook groups, too, from women who have been to her events and recount breaking down as Hillary left and seeing others around them also weeping.  Hillary is very aware of the history factor. She knows, but she does not want to claim the history prematurely.  That will not stop me from picking up some champagne on the way home from the polls tomorrow.  I have been ready for her to do this for a very long time.

Just one day past one of the saddest anniversaries of my life when I lost my candidate who held so much promise on June 6, 1968, I will see the only candidate who has ever replaced him in my heart clinch the nomination.  Yes, I probably will shed a tear, and I will be ready to toast her and us!  I think Bobby Kennedy will be looking down and smiling. Sláinte!

On the eighth anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s suspension speech, voters in New Jersey and five western states, including the behemoth, California, will go to the polls.  Given her weekend territorial victories, Hillary is certain to clinch in New Jersey before the western polls close.

Some points to remember:

  1. Every victory above and beyond NJ ensures more delegates for Hillary. So if you are in MT, ND, SD, NM, and CA please vote even if you have heard that she has clinched and even if there are lines. What we learned last night is that the lines in Puerto Rico were due to the Sanders campaign asking to have polling places closed due to a lack of volunteers to monitor the original number of polling locations.  Voters were reassigned to new polling locations causing overloads. If this happens where you are, please stay the course and cast your vote.
  2. Some are saying that undeclared special delegates (Super Ds) may rush to declare perhaps today.  John King at CNN has said that it is unlikely that they will do that before Tuesday so that the voters can bring Hillary over the hump rather than the Super Ds.
  3. It is also important to remember that the target total of delegates, 2383, includes Super Ds.  So when the Sanders campaign posits that she has not reached that number in pledged delegates, it is not pledged delegates alone that comprise that target.
  4. All ballots are not created equal. Access your sample ballot, if it has not been sent to you, via your local board of elections and study it before you go.

Here is a scan of the NJ ballot in my district.  Notice that it is not necessary for Democratic voters to vote separately for the delegates (as it is for Republican voters). Be sure that if you must vote separately for the delegates, you do so. Finally, make sure to vote all the way across for the down-ticket candidates on your ballot.

Let’s all do a bang-up job for Hillary tomorrow and bring home a huge delegate count for Hillary.  The more delegates she has, the stronger she is for all of us.

Here are a few things you can do even as late as today to help out: donate, volunteer to canvass and to make calls.

Hillary campaigned in the capital on Sunday night. The primary is right on our heels, and, with her victory in Puerto Rico, history is right around the corner. You can feel it. Hillary and the audience at Sacramento City College seemed to feel it too.

Hillary held a ‘cafe event’ in Vallejo, California as the primary results from Puerto Rico were trickling in today.  These ‘cafe events’ are roundtable discussions where she sits down with local residents and community leaders and listens to their concerns on particular issues as well as some local solutions to problems. These are signature Hillary Clinton events that she has held ever since  her first campaign for the Senate. They are not rousing rallies, but they inform her policy plans.  The subject today was health care.

Hillary Clinton joined George Stephanopoulos on This Week this morning, live from California.

‘This Week’ Transcript: Hillary Clinton

By ABC News

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT FOR ‘THIS WEEK’ ON June 5, 2016 and it will be updated.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Madam Secretary, thank you for joining us.

HILLARY CLINTON: Thank you, George

STEPHANOPOULOS: Your supporters have been pretty fired up in the last couple of days as you’ve been taking it to Donald Trump, and you also step it up using words like demagogue and dictator. Have you concluded that the best way to beat Donald Trump is to be a bit more like him?

CLINTON: No, not at all. I laid out in my speech in San Diego the crux of my concerns and my case against him on foreign policy and national security. And a lot of what he says plays into what I consider to be a very divisive and dangerous view of the world. And I think it’s important that we call it for what it is.
