ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Ahead of a campaign address in Harlem, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down at the Make my Cake bakery with Rep. Charles Rangel where he took aim her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders saying "I have been in Congress for 46 years, wouldn't I have had a conversation with him about something?" He noted that Sanders has made disparity in incomes in the U.S. has been an issue that Sanders has long focused on. "Bernie Sanders has made this a priority, I think, ever since he came to the Congress, now I need some help as to what else he has made a priority." He added, "Hillary Clinton has done something about it." Clinton now has a lead of 268 pledged delegates over Sanders heading into the final two months of the nominating battle. When superdelegates, party leaders who can support any candidate, are added, Clinton leads 1,712-1,004, according to an Associated Press count. But Sanders aides said he could eclipse Clinton's advantage after the final round of contests on June 7, and that superdelegates would begin to switch to back Sanders from Vermont once he did. Clinton's campaign described her lead as "insurmountable" given the party's proportional allocation of delegates in all states, which means Clinton will keep piling up delegates even in states Sanders wins.
