Hillary Clinton Celebrates at Times Square Victory Party

Hillary Clinton had a good night. And so had her supporters.

This woman is showing off her Hillary suit, while she is waiting in line.

Clinton’s victory party was already well underway at the Sheraton Hotel in Times Square, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer called the race for the former hometown senator.

The crowd alternated between “Hillary, Hillary!” and “I am with her!” cheers.

With 98% of the votes reported, Clinton led Sanders by 15.8%, a larger margin than even the most promising polls suggested.

The media’s view, the real party is hidden behind the press podium.

Before Clinton took to the stage herself, prominent surrogates – including mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo – celebrated New York as a progressive democratic power house. 
  
And then the room full of supporters and volunteers finally got a glimpse of their candiate. Hillary Clinton entered the podium together with her husband Bill, her (very pregnant) daughter Chelsea and her son-in-law.

  
“Today you proved again, there’s no place like home,” a smiling Clinton told the cheering crowd.

The former Secretary of State only mentioned her opponent Sanders in passing, and instead put her focus on the general election. She repeatedly attacked Donald Trump and Ted Cruz – for example when she  gave her own definition of New York Values.
