“Hillary Clinton got exactly what needed out of the Keystone State–and not an ounce more,” says Associated Press reporter Jason Bronis, referring to Clinton’s ten-point win in Pennsylvania on Tuesday night. Bronis adds that Clinton is already focusing on the next two primary races, having added stops in Indiana and North Carolina to her schedule over the next few days.
VOICEOVER: Hillary Clinton got exactly what she needed out of the Keystone State, and not an ounce more.
SEN. HILLARY CLINTON, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE (D): It’s a long road to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and it runs right through the heart of Pennsylvania.
VOICEOVER: It was a raucous gathering inside a downtown Philadelphia hotel ballroom, as supporters celebrated delivering the state Clinton so desperately needed.
CLINTON: For six weeks, Senator Obama and I have crisscrossed this state, meeting people up close, being judged side-by-side, making our best case. You listened, and today you chose.
VOICEOVER: The debate over Clinton’s future in the race for the Democratic presidential nod is silenced at least for one night, but huge hurdles still lie in her path in Indiana, in North Carolina, and a handful of other states where voters have yet to have their say. She must clear those hurdles decisively to have a chance to grab the primary prize.
CLINTON: I believe with all of my heart that together we will turn promises into action; words will become solutions; hope will become reality. So my answer to any who doubt is: Yes, we will. Thank you, and God bless you.
