Six months before the presidential election, they're looking beyond primary rival Bernie Sanders and preparing their candidate and party for what may be a hard-fought — and personally ugly — fall campaign.
Democrats are also eyeing the possibility of making a run at traditionally Republican-leaning states such as Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona, calculating that Trump's penchant for controversy could put minority and female voters in play.
Simone Ward, political director of the campaign committee for Senate Democratic races, will run Clinton's Florida operation.
Plans are also beginning to take shape for a convention that will prominently feature Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton and the vice presidential nominee.
Clinton's campaign has started the internal search for a running mate, though people familiar with the process say that effort is in an early stage.
Clinton advisers are debating whether it's more important to select a strong liberal champion from the Rust Belt to woo Sanders backers and cut into Trump's advantage with working-class white men, or to acknowledge her support among minority voters with a more history-making pick.
Emily's List, an advocacy organization that backs female Democratic candidates, has hired a New York ad agency to help market to millennial voters, a group that Clinton has struggled to win over in the primaries.
Congress accomplished relatively little in a short work period, missing deadlines on the budget and on helping Puerto Rico with its financial crisis as lawmakers began a weeklong break.
Over the past month, the Senate finally passed a major energy bill — the first in nearly a decade — and made progress on providing help for Flint, Michigan, which is grappling with a water contamination crisis from lead pipes.
President Barack Obama's $1.9 billion request for emergency funding to combat the Zika virus, known to cause grave birth defects, has elicited a lukewarm response Republicans controlling Congress.
Congressional GOP leaders seem to realize that they face a political imperative to do something on Zika rather than expose themselves to attacks from Democrats — and perhaps likely presidential nominee Donald Trump — for failing to act.
Senate Republicans may succeed in attaching a smaller Zika package to an upcoming funding bill, and House Republicans are considering adding an even smaller measure to a spending bill next month.
Despite Senate approval of a sprawling energy policy bill, and approval by the Senate environment committee of a bill to help Flint, both measures are far from done and face significant obstacles before reaching the president's desk.
The energy bill must be reconciled with a House version that includes far fewer incentives for renewable energy and does not include money for a land and water conservation fund, as the Senate version does.
A solid majority of Pennsylvania Republicans elected as delegates to the GOP's presidential nominating convention in Cleveland say they intend to vote for the candidate who won a thumping primary victory in their state — Donald Trump.
The ballot didn't tell voters which candidate the delegates support, and the 54 people who were elected can vote for whomever they want.
A canvass of the winners by The Associated Press after Tuesday's primary found that 40 of the 54 intend to vote for Trump, propelling him closer to the support he needs to win the nomination on the first vote at the convention in July.
The Pittsburgh resident says the state's rules were drawn up to give her latitude to take into account events leading to the convention, including Trump's considerable support in western Pennsylvania.
"There are just so many things that can happen in this world between now and July when we take that first vote," said Meloy, a semi-retired public affairs consultant who has held several appointed posts in state and federal government.
"Truly uncommitted" delegate Gordon Denlinger, a former state lawmaker who is now a managing partner of a venture capital firm, said he'll give great weight to how his district in the heart of Amish country voted — Trump won it with 44 percent.
Scott Uehlinger, a retired CIA operations officer and retired naval officer, did not emphasize his support for Trump during the campaign, instead promising to cast his vote however his district voted.
Jim Vasilko, a construction company owner in Johnstown, likes Trump's views on trade and immigration, and ran as a delegate committed to vote for Trump at the convention.
Donald Trump took his outsider campaign to the inner sanctum of California's Republican party, making his case directly to the GOP's state party convention even as angry demonstrators shadowed him outside in a possible harbinger of the controversy he will bring as the nominating process shifts toward the nation's most populous and diverse state.
Trump came to make his pitch as the nominating calendar moves toward its end-game in California, which with 172 delegates at stake on June 7 could decide the GOP presidential nomination.
 Trump's speech got an icier reception from the party veterans and donors who sat just beneath the stage, separated from the rest of the room by a rope.
All three candidates are looking to galvanize supporters, sway undecided party members or poach from rival campaigns at the convention.
Police in riot gear and on horseback pushed the crowd back and away from the arena; one Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive away.
There have been pushes toward moderation, but the group tends toward conservative leanings and favors calls for free markets, tax cuts and shrinking the size of government.
The state party's platform defines marriage as between a man and a woman, and wants the Supreme Court's affirmation of abortion rights reversed.
Kersti Buchanan, 70, a retired translator and party activist from Mendocino County who backs Kasich, was shocked at all of Trump's supporters -- and by the candidate's speech itself.
The protest just outside San Francisco occurred Friday, a day after anti-Trump protesters took to the streets in Southern California, blocking traffic and damaging five police cars in Costa Mesa following a speech by the leader in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
Demonstrators at both locations waved Mexican flags, an action meant to counter Trump's hard stance on immigration and disparaging remarks about Mexico.
Because of the protest, Trump was rerouted to a back entrance.
In Orange County, once a Republican stronghold but now home to a surging Hispanic population, a vocal but peaceful demonstration before a rally and Trump speech turned violent afterward.
Dozens of cars — including those of Trump supporters trying to leave — were stuck in the street as several hundred demonstrators blocked the road, waved Mexican flags and posed for selfies in front of lines of riot police.
