ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took aim at Republican rivals at a campaign event in Harlem saying "they are in over their heads." "On the Republicans side, what we are hearing is truly scary," Clinton said. "When Donald Trump talks casually about using torture, allowing more countries to get nuclear weapons, or when Ted Cruz calls for treating American Muslims like criminals and racially profiling predominantly Muslim neighborhoods, that doesn't make the sound strong it makes them sound in over their heads." Clinton now has a lead of 268 pledged delegates over rival Sen. Bernie 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.
