"I do think that Hillary Clinton moved past the primary," America Votes President Greg Speed said of Clinton’s Thursday speech.

"What she did effectively was move the general election up a week and make the news cycle match what has been her numerical lock on the nomination for quite some time." Clinton and Bernie Sanders are battling in six states Tuesday, including California, which has 475 pledged delegates up for grabs.
