Clinton fights Sanders for progressive mantle

Hillary Clinton laid into her Democratic challenger, accusing Bernie Sanders of trying unfairly to hog a progressive mantle but admitting she had work to do to win over young voters. “I am a progressive who gets results and I will be a progressive president who gets results,” she told a town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire, where she is fighting against Sanders’ dominance in local polls ahead of next week’s state primary, the second contest in the 2016 race for the White House. “I was somewhat amused today to hear Senator Sanders set himself up as the gatekeeper for the definition of what’s progressive,” she said during the event moderated by television news network CNN.
