OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — Hillary Clinton is putting the full court press on in California, hoping that a win in the state’s primary on Tuesday will all but ensure her the democratic nomination.
She spoke Sunday to the congregation of the Greater Saint Paul Church in Oakland, making mention of what’s happening in the NBA finals.
“I mean the golden state warriors are doing pretty well,” she said.
Clinton says there are some lessons to be learned.
“You get a game plan, everybody knows their part, people work together, they set the goals. You know we know some people have different talents than other people, but we also know that we do better when we are all using everybody’s talents,” Clinton said.
Clinton also spoke on a personal note, saying she and her husband, President Bill Clinton, really got to know one another when she worked as a young lawyer in Oakland in 1979.
“I have a lot of really wonderful memories of where we started right here,” Clinton said.
As for Bernie Sanders, he spent Sunday campaigning in both Los Angeles and San Diego.
“If the voter turnout is high, we will win California, and we stand a chance to win it with a big margin,” Sanders said.
Back in Oakland, Clinton said it is time for America to come together on issues ranging from gun violence to health care and education.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand,” Clinton said.
