Clinton: ‘There Is No Way I Won’t Be’ Nominee
Hillary Clinton thinks the race for the Democratic nomination is all but over, telling CNN Thursday there’s “no way” she won’t be the party’s presidential nominee.
“I will be the nominee for my party, Chris. That is already done in effect. There is no way I won’t be,” the former first lady told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Clinton called her delegate lead over rival Bernie Sanders “insurmountable” and said she expects him to unite behind her and rally his supporters to take on Donald Trump once she clinches the nomination.
“When I came out and withdrew and endorsed Sen. Obama, about 40 percent of my supporters said they would never support him, so I worked really hard to make the case, as I’m sure Sen. Sanders will,” Clinton said. “Whatever differences we may have, they pale in comparison to the presumptive nominee of the Republican party.”
