MANCHESTER–Hillary Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe called the victory in New Hampshire a “big, big win” speaking to reporters here at the rally, and said Clinton’s emotional moment yesterday provided a late boost to her campaign.
Asked whether her teary episode made a difference, McAuliffe said, “Sure it did. You bet. Because people saw how passionate she was about the issues.”
Look for this to be a theme of the campaign going forward. “People got to see Hillary Clinton,” he said, the person he’s known for 27 years. “She is a woman who feels deeply about the issues.”
He also said these results narrow it down to a two person race.
“John Edwards came in a distant third,” he said. “It’s now Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as we go forward.”
