Democratic Nomination Will Likely Be Won In March: Clinton Campaign Manager

Share

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager said on Tuesday the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election would “very likely” be decided in March, and that the support of black and Hispanic voters would be key to victory.

“It will be very difficult, if not impossible, for a Democrat to win the nomination without strong levels of support among African American and Hispanic voters,” campaign manager Robby Mook wrote in a memo titled “March Matters.”

“The nomination will very likely be won in March, not February, and we believe that Hillary Clinton is well positioned to build a strong – potentially insurmountable – delegate lead next month,” he said.

CNN projected on Tuesday that Clinton lost to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire primary.

    Hillary is correct, the nomination will pretty much be decided on Super Tuesday, but after a technical draw in Iowa, a resounding defeat in New Hampshire, and the likelihood of losing the Nevada caucuses, her concession speech and predictions sound more like desperation than reality.
    As for the predictable Trump win in NH, the real news involve Kasich’s second place finish, and what it represents to the GOP establishment, after all the money and time they invested on Rubio and Cruz to stop Trump. Kasich is, clearly, the only sane and qualified candidate in the bizarre field of GOP candidates running for President. Unfortunately, for the GOP and the USA, the Republican base does not seem to be interested in qualifications, moderation or civility. What they want is to turn the Federal government upside down, or preferably destroy it…to Make America Great Again! To do it, they seem determined to nominate a man who not too long ago supported abortion, universal healthcare, and praised both President Obama and Hillary Clinton. A man who has insulted women, Latinos, Muslims, POWs, FOX, and the entire Republican party…and the far right loves him for it. Go figure.

      Kasich is the sane one? LOL! The only reason Kasich looks sane is because the rest of them are so far out there. He sure is hell is no moderate. He is just slightly less right wing extremist than the others.

      All things considered, if anyone from the Republican primaries were to get into the WH, I think I’d rather it be Trump. He would probably do the least amount of damage out of anyone they have to offer. He’s not an ideologue like Cruz nor a hardcore conservative like Rubio. And hey, at least it would be entertaining in a train wreck kind of way.

        Speaking from the South Pacific:
        Your entire god-lovin’, gay-hating, vagina-obsessed, science-denyin’ right wing is insane (barring a handful of semi-moderates).

        It’s mind-numbingly horrifying to watch Republican candidates:
        – openly advocating torture
        – demanding religious tests for immigration/refugees (ignoring the idiocy of how this would work for a minute)
        – repeating Planned Parenthood video zombie lies as if they were true
        – encouraging violence against minorities even people AT their rallies
        – treating science as if it’s opinion
        – quoting the Bible/God and advocating religion in government despite the Founders obvious documented opinions on the scourge of religion and the secular nature of their design
        – demanding carpet bombing and nuclear detonations, avidly and with relish demeaning the conventions of war that America’s martial honor and respect depends on.
        … and generally saying things so contradictory and stupid (Pyramids are grain silos… anyone?) that I worry about their actual mental health.

        And while they do this, the crowds bay and cheer, and the votes roll in.

        It’s sickening.

        I can only assume the Flint water problem is more widespread than anyone thought.

          “Speaking from the South Pacific”

          I didn’t forget. Thanks for all the info about New Zealand. It’s tops on my list of potential new homes if these psycho conservatives ever gain complete control of the USA.

          BTW, I borrowed this post to share with Dom on a different page.
