With less than a week to go before the primary, Hillary Clinton criss-crossed the city on Wednesday, trying to drum up support from her base. Courtney Gross filed the following report.
Hillary Clinton was looking to court her base: African-American voters from Midtown to the Bronx.
"I am so proud at what's happening here in the Bronx, but it can even be better if we work together and if you have a president in the White House who actually knows where Co-Op City is," Clinton said.
She criss-crossed the city on Wednesday, starting at the National Action Network conference, appearing alongside the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"Unlike Donald Trump, we're not saying some people don't belong. We're not saying some people are not wanted. This is a borough of immigrants in a city of immigrants in a state of immigrants in a nation of immigrants, and I am proud of that," Clinton said.
The reception was cordial despite the recent campaign snafus she has had over racial politics, most recently a skit gone wrong at a charity dinner last weekend, which included a reference to "CP" time, otherwise known as "colored people time."
The campaign is putting that behind them, with Clinton doing her best to connect with Democratic voters with just days to go before Tuesday's primary.
After her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders visited a Verizon picket line in Brooklyn, Clinton followed suit, saying she was united with the union.
"I believe in collective bargaining in good faith. I believe in unions being the voice for working people. I believe that the American labor movement helped to create the American middle class. And I think that workers, employees need more support," Clinton said.
From there, she headed north to the Bronx to Co-Op City, a largely African-American cooperative development.
The crowd was much smaller than the Manhattan rally Bernie Sanders hosted, but the lines to get in wrapped through the development, with many being left outside.
Now, presumably, it's on to debate prep for Clinton ahead of Thursday night's faceoff.
