Clinton Consolidates Northeast, Halfway Point Nears
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) has consolidated support in the northeast with wins in Massachusetts, New Jersey and her home state of New York. So far, Clinton has the edge with roughly half of the 22 Super Tuesday states already called.
Massachusetts and New Jersey were expected to be close fights between the two candidates. In Massachusetts, both Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) claimed a victory of sorts. Clinton's campaign called it the "upset of the night" citing Obama's endorsements from Sens. Ted Kennedy and John Kerry and Gov. Deval Patrick. Obama's campaign pointed out that he had trailed by a wide margin just weeks ago and that his close loss amounted to a moral victory.
Connecticut -- The Fix's home state -- remained un-called as of 10:00 p.m. ET. If Clinton wins, she will have swept the northeast, a ringing endorsement from the states in which she is best known.
Thoughts? Has the race played out to form so far?
