HOOKSETT, N.H. (CBS) – Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton told a raucous crowd of supporters that she still loves New Hampshire, despite a lopsided defeat to Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary.
As she took the stage at Southern New Hampshire University, Clinton was greeted to chants of “Hillary” and joked to the celebratory crowd that “I don’t know what we’d have done tonight if we’d actually won.”
Clinton then congratulated Sanders on the victory, and thanked Granite State voters for their support.
“I want to thank each and every one of you and I want to say that I still love New Hampshire and I always will,” Clinton said.
During her speech, Clinton conceded that she has “some work to do,” particularly among young voters.
Sanders said Clinton was gracious as she called to concede the primary race.
“Now we take this campaign to the entire country,” Clinton told the crowd. “We’re going to fight for every vote in every state. We’re going to fight for real solutions that make a difference in peoples’ lives.”
