    Hillary Clinton said she would win her party’s nomination for president.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said during an interview on Monday that she is confident she will win her party’s nomination for president.

    "I’m absolutely confident I will be the nominee," Clinton said during an interview with ABC’s ‘Good Morning America.’

    The former secretary of state said that in the coming months she would do "everything" she can to "win in as many places as possible," when asked about the upcoming election in her home state of New York.

    "I can remember how hard it was when my husband ran in 1992. I ran a really tough campaign against then Senator Obama. I ended up with slightly more votes, but he ended up with more delegates, so we have a system and I’m very confident that I will be the nominee, but I’m not taking anything or any place or anyone for granted," Clinton said.

    On April 19, New Yorkers will head to the polls to take part in their state’s primary. Clinton, a former New York senator, needs her home state to secure much needed delegate support. With nearly half the primaries and caucuses behind, the latest national poll indicates that Clinton and New York billionaire Donald Trump are likely to head into the general elections on November 8.
