WASHINGTON - Attempting to reassure anxious donors, Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined her plan for beating Democratic presidential frontrunner Barack Obama in a pair of primaries next month that even some of her supporters say she must win to stay in the race.
Clinton insisted that her campaign is on track and moving forward, despite losing 11 contests to Obama since February 5. "I am very optimistic and extremely positive about what we're doing as we go forward in these states," Clinton said of Ohio and Texas, two delegate-rich states on which she has pinned the future of her candidacy.
"I hear with increasing frequency, 'Don't give up, you're going to win'," she said, speaking at a Boston fundraiser on Sunday.
Ohio and Texas both hold primaries next week, with 334 delegates combined, and former president Bill Clinton has said publicly that his wife probably needs to win both of them if she is to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
Recent polls show the race in Texas to be a statistical dead heat.
In Ohio, polls show Clinton with a narrowing lead.
Clinton on Sunday pledged to continue to stress her differences with Obama on issues including universal health care, and said she will step up her criticism of the Illinois senator's lack of experience in public life.
"We're going to emphasize more and more the experience gap," Clinton told several hundred supporters who had paid R3850 to attend the Boston fundraiser. - Sapa-AP
