“We have allowed our politics to be hijacked by extreme ideologues,” Clinton said.
"We all know the stakes keep getting higher, and the rhetoric we’re hearing from other side just keeps sinking lower," she continued, referencing Thursday's GOP debate when Donald TrumpDonald TrumpSpicer trends worldwide on Twitter after first WH briefing Interior Dept. reactivates Twitter accounts after shutdown Booker: 'I am not open to being president' MORE, Marco RubioMarco RubioGOP, Dems hear different things from Trump Senate committee to vote Monday on Tillerson Tillerson met with top State official: report MORE and Ted CruzTed CruzTrump's America: Businessmen in, bureaucrats out When Trump says 'Make America Great Again,' he means it Booker is taking orders from corporate pharmaceuticals MORE tangled in multiple spats.
“Instead of building walls, we’re going to be knocking down barriers and building ladders of opportunity and empowerment so every American can live up to his or her potential,” she said.
Clinton’s remarks come after Sanders landed victories in both the Kansas and Nebraska caucuses and the former secretary of State racked up a win in Louisiana.
The Vermont senator was expected to have a strong night and spent a considerable amount of time and resources ahead of Kansas and Nebraska and appeared on the air in those states.
Clinton briefly acknowledged the Super Saturday contests and then quickly pivoted to the upcoming primary in delegate-rich Michigan.
“I want to congratulate Sen. Sanders for running a strong campaign,” Clinton said.
“I am thrilled we’re adding to our pledged delegate count, I’m grateful to everyone who turned out to support us,” she added.
Clinton and Sanders will square off in a Democratic debate in Flint, Mich., on Sunday, two days ahead of the primary there.
Sanders is making a play for Michigan and outspent Clinton on TV ads in the Great Lakes State, according to the Detroit News. Still, recent polls show him trailing behind Clinton in the double digits.
“But now all eyes turn to Michigan and I can tell you this, we’re going to work for every vote,” she said.
