Following her lean chance to be the U.S. president-elect as the chunk of the votes were counted, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told supporters that the election was still too close to call.
The confirmation came few minutes after Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, John Podesta, addressed a group of pro-Clinton supporters on her behalf.
He said “several states are too close to call, so we are not going to have anything more to say tonight. Everybody should head home, you should get some sleep; we’ll have more to say tomorrow.
“I want every person in this hall to know and I want every person across the country who supported Hillary to know that your voices and your enthusiasm mean so much to her and Kaine and to all of us.
“We are so proud of you and we are so proud of her. She’s done an amazing job and she’s not done yet. So thank you for being with her, she has always been with you.
“I have to say this tonight. Good night, we will be back to have more to say, let’s get those votes counted and let’s bring this home.
“Thank you so much for all that you have done. You are in all of our hearts,” Podesta told the crowd.
Trump won in several crucial battleground states, including Florida and North Carolina, giving him a path to victory.
