Terry McAuliffe was talking with reporters when the AP and NBC called the race for Hillary Clinton.
“This is a big, big win for us tonight,” he said, calling the win “another Clinton comeback.”
“I think Hillary really found her voice here and people saw here the real Hillary Clinton,” he said.
When asked if her emotional moment in a Portsmouth coffee shop yesterday had any impact on the result, he said, “Sure it did, you bet,” explaining that “it showed the human side of Hillary Clinton–the passionate side.”
McAuliffe, one of the party’s top moneymen, said that in the last hour his phone had been “ringing off the hook with money with congratulations.”
