Clinton hails Florida win

Associated Press - January 29, 2008 10:13 PM ET

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Hillary Clinton says it's a "resounding" win. And in her victory speech tonight following today's Florida primary, she pledged to do all she can to make sure the state's delegates are seated and are in the winning column for the Democrats.

Last year, the national party stripped Florida of its delegates as punishment for moving its primary ahead of February 5th, and the candidates pledged to bypass the state.

But Democratic voters turned out, in part driven by ballot initiatives on property tax relief and gambling in some counties.

Exit polls of Florida Democrats conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks showed that those surveyed believe the economy is the most important issue facing the country. Half of Democrats called the economy poor.
