    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders arrives for a campaign rally at Boardwalk Hall on May 9, 2016, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

    With California's Democratic primary coming next month, the promise the Golden State once held for Bernie Sanders doesn't seem as strong anymore, NBC News reported.

    "We think we have a path toward victory, and that path absolutely must go through California," Sanders told the Los Angeles Times in March.

    But now, with California's June 7 primary finally coming into view, Sanders may be heading into the Golden State hobbled.

    Despite notching two wins this month, with more likely to come, Sanders is running lower on cash than expected and replaced his top official in California Wednesday. Meanwhile, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has moved to solidify her support in the state, which she won comfortably over Barack Obama in 2008.
