Clinton and Sanders spar over joint fundraising efforts

Clinton and Sanders spar over joint fundraising efforts

The comment triggered outrage among Native American advocates, not to mention derision from critics of her highly-lucrative involvement with the Clinton Foundation that she operates with serially-unfaithful husband Bill. Sanders called it a "tough road to climb, but not an impossible one".

Clinton, who after a big win in four northeastern states last week has an nearly insurmountable delegate lead in the Democratic primary contest, is increasingly pivoting to general-election mode. But it's still likely that Sanders will block Clinton from clinching the nomination using pledged delegates.

The argument that Sanders is making-and his campaign has been making-is that superdelegates in states that voted heavily in favor of Sanders should follow the voters.

"The people that are with Bernie Sanders, the young people, I really believe they're going to come over and vote for me. It makes it hard for insurgent candidacies like ours to win", he added. Thanks to Trump's sexist and racist language, polls showed these groups would flock heavily to Clinton and leave Trump unable to win swing states.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke at the Detroit NAACP Annual 61st Dinner on Sunday, speaking about mass incarceration, unequal access to education and equal access to home ownership.

Down by huge margins among the delegates chosen by voters, Sanders had already opened the door for the party's unelected superdelegates to throw him the nomination. He would have to rely on superdelegates. The campaign had previously announced that he would attend a rally at Louisville's Waterfront Park on Tuesday night.

According to the latest Real Clear Politics average, Donald Trump's lead in the winner-take-all Indiana Primary has jumped to 9 percent, with 57 RNC convention delegates are at stake.

"Bernie will still pick up some [delegates] so he won't be completely blocked out, but momentum is working against him", said David Campbell, chairman of the political science department at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

ABC News' Liz Kreutz tweeted out the number on Monday. Her speeches were once full of knocks on Sanders, but now she often goes days without mentioning him in public.
