ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton defeated challenger Bernie Sanders in Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania and sought to look ahead to the convention in July and the general election in November. "With your help, we're going to come back to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention with the most votes and the most pledged delegates," Clinton said Tuesday (April 16) at her campaign event in Philadelphia.

Sanders won Rhode Island while Connecticut results were not immediately available. Before Tuesday's outcome, the former secretary of state had an almost insurmountable lead of 275 pledged delegates heading into Tuesday's contests, and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid told reporters he did not think Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, had a realistic path to winning the nomination.
