Clinton Win Allows Her to Breathe Easier
Hillary Clinton is finally able to breath a sigh of relief. Not a full throated victory cheer, but at least she can exhale.
Clinton scored her first clear win over Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, her first in three tries. And strong support from African-Americans signals strength heading into South Carolina next week and Super Tuesday states just beyond.
But her narrow margin of victory overall, and her loss among Hispanic voters specifically, still suggests surprising challenges and a possibly long slog for the Democratic presidential nomination.
