A tale of two very different Campaigns–and two very different “Super Tuesday” nights in Texas in the Democratic Presidential race.
“I’m feeling really good about this campaign–it is an overwhelming–even astounding victory here” said Democratic Congressman Lloyd Doggett who stopped by a Hillary Clinton watch party in San Antonio. He told KTSA News the hard work isn’t over–but he sees plenty of momentum building.
“There’s no doubt we face tough competition going forward–whoever the Republican nominee is–but I believe Hillary Clinton is well positioned going forward to take Bexar County in the fall” Doggett said, an enthusiasm shared by former Congressman Henry Cisneros.
“In fact, I kind of feel like some Republicans at least acknowledge she is the best person to be President’ Cisneros told KTSA News.
On the other side of the race–it was a tough night for Bernie Sanders’ supporters.
“Do we wish we had more yes–but you can’t change history–it is what it is” Charles Soechting with the Sanders Campaign told KTSA News, refusing to second guess the amount of time and focus that was put on Texas.
“When you’re working on small donations, and you have fifty states to cover–it’s hard to do all of it” Soechting said.
