Hillary Clinton celebrates Super Tuesday victories in Sunshine State

Hillary Clinton has her sights set on Florida, telling a crowd Tuesday she was “so delighted to be” in Florida.

“All across our country today, Democrats voted to break down barriers so we can all rise together,” she said during a Super Tuesday event in Miami. “This country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top, not just to the people who look one way, worship one way or think one way.”

Clinton was projected to win many of the nominating contests Tuesday. She holds a significant lead over Bernie Sanders in Florida polls, and recent polling averages show she holds a nearly 30-point lead over the Vermont Democrat in Florida.

She has been ramping up her efforts in the Sunshine State. In recent days, her campaign has opened offices in Gainesville and Miami-Dade County. Former President Bill Clinton has stumped for his wife in Florida on two separate occasions. On Wednesday, the campaign is set to announce several endorsements on the steps of Florida’s historic Capitol.

On Tuesday, Clinton rallied supporters and told them she will fight for them if she is elected.

“Americans prosper when we all prosper. America is strong when we’re all strong. And we know we know we have work to do,” she said during the speech. “But that work isn’t to make America great again. America never stopped being great. We have to make America whole. We have to fill what has been hollowed out.”

Clinton said Americans need to “break down the barriers that face the working class.”

“Whether we like it or not, we’re all in this together my friends and we have to do our part,” she said. “Imagine what we can build together.

Clinton was one of three candidates who watched Super Tuesday results roll in from Florida. Marco Rubio held a rally in his hometown of Miami; while Donald Trump held a news conference in Palm Beach.
