voters, even those who may not like her. >> please, ask them to search their heart about what kind of country we want for our kids and grandkids. it's not as important that they think about voting for me, as it is that they think about voting for themselves. >> reporter: overnight, clinton acknowledging this election is making america sick. >> i know there are a lot of people who are upset about what's gone on in the campaign, aren't there? people come and talk to me. i've had people say they can't sleep, their stomachs are bothering them, they have headaches. and i think that's an important signal, because this is a big decision. >> reporter: her army of top surrogates fanning out across the map. bernie sanders in iowa. vice president joe biden in wisconsin.
