"I congratulate Secretary Clinton on her victories tonight, and I look forward to issue-oriented campaigns in the 14 contests to come. [...] "The people in every state in this country should have the right to determine who they want as president and what the agenda of the Democratic Party should be. That's why we are in this race until the last vote is cast. That is why this campaign is going to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia with as many delegates as possible to fight for a progressive party platform that calls for a $15 an hour minimum wage, an end to our disastrous trade policies, a Medicare-for-all health care system, breaking up Wall Street financial institutions, ending fracking in our country, making public colleges and universities tuition free and passing a carbon tax so we can effectively address the planetary crisis of climate change."
Onstage in a city where she will in all likelihood will be crowned the Democratic presidential nominee in July, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday moved to embrace Bernie Sanders' supporters as she expanded her already significant delegate lead in the day's primaries. "With your help, we're going to come back to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention," Clinton said to supporters. "We will unify our party to win this election." [...] On Tuesday, Clinton not only praised her rival but elevated his issues and made common cause with his voters. "I applaud Senator Sanders and his millions of supporters," she said. She ticked through his core issues -- curbing big money in politics and economic inequality, addressing climate change -- and explained they are her priorities, too.
