6:08 am
it was an unbelievable campaign. in places they ran out it. do i think in this campaign we're going to match that? i would love to see us do that. i hope we can. frankly i don't think we can. but sanders says if his turnout his high enough.. including "non- traditional" voters.. he can win. today sanders heads to the white house for a private meeting with president obama in the oval office. the white house says the meeting will be informal with no specific agenda. former secretary of state hillary clinton has had a number of private meetings with obama the president has not endorsed a potential successor. a police officer helps deliver a baby on the side of a busy freeqay. the n-y-p-d tweeted out this picture of the new new yorker. police say he was delivered near the united nations headquarters....the n taken to the hospital.
