Fox 40 News: Supporters Hold Super Tuesday Watch Parties Around Region

News

Fox40

At Simon’s Cafe in downtown Sacramento, some at the Young Democrats of Sacramento County watch party believe their party also now has a front runner candidate, Hillary Clinton.

“I think she knows that she really has the support of enough states now to really get excited about this race and start thinking long term for November,” said Alyssa Hanou, political director of the Sacramento County Young Democrats.

Hanou helped the Clinton campaign by knocking on doors in Reno before last month’s Nevada Democratic Caucus. She said Clinton’s speech Tuesday night shows she’s getting ready to face Drumpf in November.

“She looked so happy to see the support from, at that point, five states. It just reaffirmed how much I believe in her sincerity actually,” Hanou told FOX40.

But Tristan Brown doesn’t believe his candidate, Bernie Sanders, is completely out of the race just yet.

“You might have a technical winner, but they’re both walking away with delegates and growing their number up until we get to the finish line at the DNC,” Brown said.

Dem Debate 1

Over at Simon’s, a viewing party hosted by the Sacramento County Young Democrats also drew hundreds. Loyalties at the event were largely divided among the front-runners.

“If we’re counting the cheers, I’d say that it’s pretty even between Bernie and Hillary,” said event organizer Mikey Hothi.

After the debate, some in the crowd at Simon’s said Hillary Clinton came across stronger, more personable and experienced, while others said Bernie Sanders won with his progressive platforms, plain talk, and rejection of big money in politics.
