Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign declared victory in the Iowa caucuses over Bernie Sanders on Monday night, even as the results were still being tallied.
Clinton was leading Sanders 49.8 percent to 49.6 percent with 95 percent of precincts reporting, according to CNN, and her aides were saying that based on the numbers they were looking at, she was the winner.
In a short speech in Des Moines, Clinton stopped shy of declaring a victory, though she did concede she was “breathing a big sigh of relief.”
‘What a great campaign this has been,” she said, adding that it’s been a “real contest of ideas.”
She also seemingly took a page from the Sanders playbook at one point in her remarks.
“I am a progressive who gets things done for people,” she declared.
Sanders separately declared a moral victory in the too-close-to-call race.
