WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Ohio, earning her third win in Tuesday’s quintet of contests.
Clinton already scored victories in Florida and North Carolina, earning 175 additional delegates before winning Ohio.
Hillary Clinton says a president must be ready to “start making decisions” immediately upon assuming office since it’s a job that will affect every person on the planet.
Clinton, a Democrat, did not mention Republican front-runner Donald Trump by name. But she said Tuesday that any president would have to keep the country safe, make “positive changes” in people’s lives and unite the country.
Clinton has repeatedly accused Trump of using divisive rhetoric. She also called for all candidates to lay out specifics – including the cost – of their plans, something she has repeatedly asked of her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.
Clinton has won at least three state primaries on Tuesday: Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. And she has widened her delegate lead over rival Bernie Sanders.
