Hillary Clinton's camp released a memo Tuesday that conceded her defeat in New Hampshire, but predicted a much more successful series of primaries in March, when she'll get to run in bigger states with larger minority populations.
"[W]hereas the electorates in Iowa and New Hampshire are largely rural/suburban and predominantly white, the March states better reflect the true diversity of the Democratic Party and the nation — including large populations of voters who live in big cities and small towns, and voters with a much broader range of races and religions," the memo said.
"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," the memo added. It was first reported by PBS.
It noted that states with more delegates such as Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois and Florida, have "some of the largest minority and urban populations."
"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," it said. "We believe that's how it should be."
