With four state wins under her belt and a virtual tie on a fifth, supporters of Hillary Clinton think the Democratic nomination is in view.

Her successes in Florida, Ohio, Illinois and North Carolina plus so-called “super delegates” makes it unlikely rical Bernie Sanders can catch up.

“Our next president has to be ready to face three big tasks: First, can you make positive differences in people’s lives; second, can you keep us safe; third, can you bring our country together again,” said Clinton in her victory speech in Florida.

The outcome of these latests primaries have left a “feel good” atmosphere in the Clinton camp:

“I think the general public likes her, I think she’s got a strong case, supports a lot of things and issue that we talk about, care about,” said one political fan.

“I remember seeing Hillary Clinton as First Lady when I was 14 years old. And to be able now and vote for her, she is the first woman who showed me that I didn’t have to be someone’s wife to be in politics, I can be in politics,” said another.

Euronews correspondent Stefan Grobe was in Florida on the Democratic trail:

“It was Hillary Clinton biggest night so far of the whole primary season. In her victory speech, she signaled that Bernie Sanders is no longer a threat. She can now set her sights on whoever ends up being the Republican nominee.”
