Hillary Clinton is stepping up her game in California.

Gearing up for the June 7 primary, in which 475 delegates are up for grabs, the former secretary of state has opened her fourth Los Angeles office in Woodland Hills Monday.

The opening event was planned to feature L.A. City Council member Bob Blumenfield at the Promenade Mall, according to the L.A. Daily News.

With nine offices full of volunteers and paid staffers, Clinton is now in the midst of a four-day campaign blitz in the Golden State. She opened her first L.A. office in early May, The Real Deal reported. Mayor Eric Garcetti was among the VIPs at the debut event.

The Democratic frontrunner’s opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, has also upped his California ground game in recent weeks. He has been up and down the state this past week, hosting rallies in cities like L.A., Carson and San Diego — some of which drew crowds of more than 6,000.

Recent polls put Clinton ahead of Sanders by an average of 9.5 percentage points, but among real estate insiders, the former New York senator is a clear favorite. According to a previous TRD analysis, Clinton received more donations from L.A. real estate players than any other candidate by far. Notable contributors include Beny Alagem, owner of the Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills, and Jeff Hyland, co-founder of luxe brokerage Hilton & Hyland. [LADN]Cathaleen Chen
