Hillary Clinton Cleaning Up in the Northeast

WASHINGTON D.C. — Hillary Clinton has won Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey so far tonight. New Jersey and New York were easy wins for Clinton, while Massachusetts was more hotly contested. Clinton consistently held a lead there, but it was shrunk in recent weeks by the endorsements of Governor Deval Patrick and Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy. An impressive win for Clitnon in the Bay State.

One point about McCain’s victories that I’ll admit I stole from the MSNBC broadcast crew: all of his wins tonight are coming in blue states. Chris Matthews and Joe Scarborough seem to think this means horrible things for McCain’s chances in the general election. I don’t really get it.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
