Super Tuesday is far from over, but Hillary Clinton is already taking a healthy lead over her fellow Democratic candidate, Bernie Sanders. With seven states already in her name, it’s looking more and more likely that she may win the entire night!
Hillary Clinton, 68, gained serious ground on Super Tuesday, March 1, when the night was still young. Though Bernie Sanders, 74, had won four states, it was nothing compared to Hillary — she swept seven! Her commanding presence in the race means that this primary election night is only going to get more interesting.
It was an incredible night for Hillary, even before it ended. The democratic frontrunner all but cemented her status by racking up victories in seven states: Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Massachusetts, and Texas. Damn! Bernie won his native Vermont, as well as Oklahoma, but there were still plenty of other states to win — and it was projected that they would go to Hillary.
Hillary gave a powerful, gracious victory speech from her current campaign stop in Miami, Florida, where she is doing the legwork to rack up votes for the upcoming. post-Super Tuesday primary. At that point, Hillary didn’t even know that she had won Texas! The former Secretary of State congratulated the Vermont senator on winning his home state, and for the expert campaigning he’s been doing. Though Hillary’s not feeling the Bern, it’s clear there’s no real animosity between the two candidates.
Hillary spoke about her wish to unify the country and to raise up underprivileged groups. In a clever call out to Donald Trump, instead of saying she’d like to make America great again, she wants to “make America whole again.” Sounds good! Speaking of Trump, he’s now established himself as her formidable competition on the GOP front. At the same point in the night, Trump had won six states, while, in echoing the Democratic race, Ted Cruz had won two. There’s a long way to go to victory, but it seems like Hillary may be well on her way there!
