She may have lost last night in Indiana, but it’s manifest destiny now for Hillary Clinton: She’s moving out West.

Clinton’s campaign opened an office in L.A. on Tuesday night, the L.A. Daily News reported. The campaign opened a base in the Bay Area last week, making the L.A. office Clinton’s second California post. 

The new L.A. chapter will host 150 staff members and volunteers. Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis were among her supporters at the opening event.

“We don’t need a candidate who says, ‘You’re fired!” Garcetti said, in reference to the de facto Republican candidate Donald Trump. “We need a candidate who says, ‘You’re hired!”

Recent polls place Clinton ahead in the Golden State by nearly 10 percentage points. The Democratic frontrunner continues to approach the 2,382 delegate benchmark needed to secure the nomination.

In California real estate, Clinton is the favorite candidate by far. According to a TRD review of campaign donations, she has received the most — and the most sizable — contributions from industry insiders.

Records show that notable donors include Jeff Hyland, co-founder of luxe brokerage Hilton & Hyland; Beny Alagem, the Israeli American entrepreneur who owns the Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills; and creative office space developer Robert Herscu.

The California primary will take place June 7. [LADN]Cathaleen Chen
