Clinton addressed the Michigan Democratic Party in Detroit and condemned her Republican rivals for the personal attacks that have consumed the GOP primary.

“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 John Trump20 weeks out from midterms, Dems and GOP brace for surprises Sessions responds to Nazi comparisons: 'They were keeping the Jews from leaving' Kim Jong Un to visit Beijing this week MORE, Marco RubioMarco Antonio RubioHillicon Valley: Supreme Court takes up Apple case | Senate votes to block ZTE deal | Officials testify on Clinton probe report | Russia's threat to undersea cables | Trump tells Pentagon to create 'space force' | FCC begins T-Mobile, Sprint deal review Feehery: Betting on Trump Senate votes to block Trump's ZTE deal MORE and Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzMcCain calls on Trump to rescind family separation policy: It's 'an affront to the decency of the American people' Cruz announces bill to end separation of immigrant families The Hill's 12:30 Report — Sponsored by Delta Air Lines — Furor grows over child separation policy 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.
