Mark Alderman, chairman of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, discusses the California primary on CNBC Power Lunch. Mark says, “This is the storm before the calm. California is always stormy. Eight years ago, then Senator Clinton beat then Senator Obama by eight points and then withdrew and endorsed. I think that same thing could happen again this time around. It’s important for Secretary Clinton to win for the perception of her campaign, but for the reality of this race, she has already won, she is the nominee.” Mark also says that, “If Donald Trump can sort of unite the Republican Party, Secretary Clinton can certainly unite the Democrats. She needs to honor the man and respect the agenda when it comes to Senator Sanders. Senator Sanders has had a phenomenal run here, and Secretary Clinton very publicly, and very personally, needs to celebrate that achievement. I think that she also needs to respect his agenda. The party platform, the party rules have to include and incorporate the issues that have been important to him.”
