ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Despite Hillary Clinton having an almost unassailable lead in the delegates needed to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination, her opponent, Bernie Sanders, celebrated his primary victories and shifted his focus toward California, while speaking in San Jose Wednesday (May 18). Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, is determined to fight on against front-runner Clinton in what has become a longer-than-expected and sometimes acrimonious battle. In contests Tuesday, Clinton narrowly edged out Sanders in Kentucky, a state where she had not been expected to win. Sanders won Oregon, a state that played to his strengths. Democrats are faced with a delicate balancing act as long as Sanders remains in the primary race, needing to pivot toward Trump without taking Clinton's nomination for granted and alienating passionate backers of Sanders.
