Hillary Clinton decides to cancel New Jersey event to campaign in California. With Bernie Sanders closing in on her lead, the former Secretary of State and first lady has decided to cancel her event in New Jersey so that she can campaign in California where votes and 475 delegates are at stake.
According to a report from the Mail Online, California is no longer looking to be an easy win for Clinton with her lead from Sanders now up by two points in a recent poll done by the Public Policy Institute of California.
Sanders wants Clinton’s friends out of the Democratic National Convention (DNC). When it comes to the DNC, Sanders believes that Clinton should not have any close friends, especially when those friends are part of the convention’s committee.
According to a report from Politico, the Vermont senator had recently sent a letter to the DNC which challenges the credentials of Dannel Malloy and Barney Frank to be Platform Committee Co-Chair and Rules Committee Co-Chair respectively.
The letter also pointed out that both “have been harsh, vocal critics of Senator Sanders, and equally active supporters of his challenger, Hillary Clinton.” Sanders’ camp also believes that “preferences of party officials must not interfere with the fair and neutral administration of Convention business and procedures.”
Poll shows millennials going with Trump if Sanders won’t be around. Today’s polls seem to be showing that millennials would prefer to go with the presumptive GOP presidential candidate should Sanders lose the Democratic presidential nomination to Clinton.
According to a report from Inquisitr, Clinton is losing more and more points in polls when it comes to the age 18 to 29 demographic. One poll done by ABC News shows Clinton losing 19 percent of votes from this age group. In contrast, Trump gained 17 percent of what Clinton lost.
Sanders says Clinton’s plans for Puerto Rico are “too little, too late.” Clinton is coming under heavy criticism from the Vermont senator regarding her support of a controversial bill that would establish a control board made up of a number of Republican congressional appointees that could impose harsh austerity measures to manage Puerto Rico’s $70 billion debt.
At the same time, Clinton had also recently said she would “evaluate the case” when it comes to the release from prison of 73-year old political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera. Sanders pointed out that he was the first presidential candidate to call for Rivera’s release.
