ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton urged members of a church congregation in Oakland, California to help her continue the legacy of President Obama. During a campaign stop ahead of Tuesday's California primary, Clinton paid tribute to Obama's accomplishments in pushing the Affordable Care Act through Congress, and steering the U.S. economy out of a recession. California is the final big contest in the long, bitter fight for the Democratic nomination. Opinion polls show the Democratic race there tightening in recent weeks. Where Clinton, a former secretary of state, once held a big lead over Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, the two now are nearly tied. A University of Southern California/Los Angeles Times poll released on Friday showed Sanders with a one-percentage-point lead over Clinton in the state, 44 to 43 percent, a swing from March when Clinton held a nine-point edge.
