Hillary Clinton Wins Again

30 01 2008

 Sen. Hillary Clinton will win Florida’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday, although party sanctions have stripped the state of its convention delegates and no Democrats campaigned there

Published polls showed the New York senator and former first lady was heavily favored in the state.

Her leading rivals, South Carolina primary winner Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John Edwards, did not campaign in Florida. They opted to concentrate on next week’s “Super Tuesday” contests in states such as New York, California, Missouri and Georgia.

The sanctions make Tuesday night’s results largely meaningless to the Democratic presidential race. Obama described the primary as a “beauty contest” Tuesday, and his campaign issued a statement declaring the race a tie in the delegate count: “Zero for Obama, zero for Clinton.”

But Clinton has pledged to fight to have the state’s delegates seated at the August convention in Denver, and has increasingly stressed the state’s importance since losing Saturday’s hotly contested primary in South Carolina to Obama.
