Clinton pitches minimum-wage boost while fundraising in LA

Thursday night's standoff between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders seemed to break new ground on the contentious scale, with Clinton going after Sanders on guns and Sanders mocking Clinton's connections to Wall Street.

While Sanders' campaign did not organize the counter-fundraiser, it did use the Clooney events to do fundraising of its own. "I agree completely", Clooney said.

The Sanders supporters blasted "Hail to the Chief" and "We're in the Money" as Clinton drove by, and once she passed, the group danced in the street, stomping on the dollar bills.

Clinton has long maintained that she will release the transcripts of her paid speeches when every other candidate in both parties does the same.

"You'll get them, yes", Mr Sanders said. There are 712 of them and include Democratic National Committee members, the party's governors, senators and US representatives.

"What he's saying in this election is important if you're a Democrat, again, to have these conversations", Clooney said, even promising that he would fund-raise for the Vermont senator if he were the Democratic nominee.

Chalkers was one of the hundreds of Sanders supporters unhappy with a private Clinton fundraiser.

Bernie Sanders accused Hillary Clinton of neglecting the Palestinians, and Clinton said her rival was more prone to criticizing than solving problems when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "I called them out on their mortgage behavior".

But within a few days she said, "Looking back, I shouldn't have used those words, and I wouldn't use them today". And New York is right in the middle of it. "I think she wants to bring accountability into government".

Clinton faces a tough test with Sanders in California, where an independent Field Poll released this month found Clinton with a 6-percentage-point lead, with 12 percent of voters still undecided.
