McAuliffe: Hillary Clinton on the road to Democratic nomination


hillary clintonTerry McAuliffe campaigned in Iowa for Hillary Clinton. Wednesday night, the Virginia governor took to MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews to tout the former Secretary of State.

“She’s talked about things that she has done, she has accomplished, and most importantly, what she wants to get done. That’s the difference I think between Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton. She is a progressive who gets things done, instead of just making these grandiose promises that at the end of the day, Chris, cannot be done,” McAuliffe said.

Clinton narrowly defeated Sanders in the Iowa caucuses Monday night, but trails the Vermont senator by double-digits in New Hampshire, where voters head to the polls next week.

“Now we move to New Hampshire which is tougher, because he is a neighboring senator. But right after that, Chris, we go to Nevada, South Carolina and then 10 states on March 1st, including Virginia, and I think Hillary is up in the majority in all of those states. As you get through March 1st is when Hillary will be on the road to the nominee of the Democratic Party,” McAuliffe said.
