By the time California’s presidential primary election arrived in 2016, Bernie Sanders was a beaten man. This time around, everything has changed. The senator from Vermont was an insurgent outsider three years ago in a head-to-head race against Hillary Clinton, the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state whose grip on the Democratic nomination was effectively unshakeable by the time California’s primary was held in June that year. When Sanders heads to San Diego on Friday for the […]
