Hilary Clinton Nears Democratic Nomination

Former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton is nearing the Democratic presidential nomination, but she faces one last contentious political fight in California, the country's most populous state, against her sole challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Clinton, looking to become the first female U.S. president, is very close to amassing a solid majority of delegates to the party's July national nominating convention. She has 2,310 of the 2,383 delegates she needs to be the first woman nominated for president by a major U.S. political party; Sanders has 1,542 pledged delegates.

Clinton, the top U.S. diplomat from 2009 to 2013, is likely to clinch the nomination June 7. This could come while Californians are still voting next week, since she is a heavy favorite in the eastern state of New Jersey, where polls close three hours before California.

Four other states also are holding nominating contests next Tuesday: Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota, but California is drawing the largest share of Clinton's attention. She has canceled scheduled campaign rallies elsewhere this week to return to the West Coast for a five-day swing through California.

She is hoping to avert an embarrassing popular-vote defeat in the biggest state, which would sting even though she would earn a sizable share of the state's 548 delegates to the Democratic national convention, allocated on a proportional basis.

Some political surveys show Clinton with a wide lead in California. Others say she is locked in a close contest with Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist who has attacked Clinton for her close ties to Wall Street financial chieftains and her past support for U.S. trade pacts with other countries that he says have cost American workers their jobs.

Clinton, 68, has amassed three million more votes than Sanders in the state-by-state nominating contests, but the 74-year-old Sanders has won substantially more support from younger voters and the party's most liberal wing.
