(Newser) – Hillary Clinton savored her win in the Pennsylvania primary tonight, pitching herself in her victory speech as the toughest Democratic contender for the job. She dismissed calls for her to drop out of the race, adding, "The American people don't quit and they deserve a president who doesn't quit, either."  She pledged to stand up for ordinary citizens, for people who "never waver in the face of adversity, who stand for what they believe and never stop believing in America."

Clinton called for donations to her web site, MSNBC reports, noting that the Barack Obama campaign "outspent us 3-1, trying to knock us out ."  She pitched herself as resilient, saying, "I might stumble and I might fall down, but as long as you stand with me, I'll get right back up."
