Hillary Clinton Wins West Virginia
Posted on May 13, 2008Hillary Clinton has won West Virginia in a landslide. With 54% of the precincts reporting, Hillary is winning 65% - 28%. In her victory speech, Hillary made her case to the superdelegates. She listed all the states she has won, including the crucial general election states of Michigan, Florida, Ohio, California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New York. She was gracious to Senator Obama and his supporters, but said that she thinks she is the stronger candidate.
The crowd was energetic and it was a fantastic speech. She laid out her best arguments to the superdelegates as to why she should be the nominee, and it was compelling. Next week is Kentucky, where she is expected to win, and Oregon, where Obama is expected to win.
