Clinton, Sanders aim at June showdown in California

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hillary Clinton says she's going to fight for every vote in California's June primary, but she's also looking ahead: to the November election.

The former first lady told reporters at the University of Southern California on Thursday that she values California's role as an "exclamation point" on the long nomination fight.

And she's "reaching out to ... every voter."

But Clinton adds she's looking beyond the June 7 showdown with Bernie Sanders and "it's important to get ready and organized for the fall election."

Clinton won in Arizona Tuesday, maintaining a lopsided advantage over Sanders in the Democratic race despite his wins in Utah and Idaho on the same night. She has a 300-delegate lead over the Vermont senator.

Sanders says he'll win California if he gets a big turnout.
