(Newser) – Hillary Clinton made clear she has no intention of dropping from the race in the wake of her resounding victory in Kentucky. She told supporters that more people have voted for her than for any candidate who's run for the Democratic nomination, CNN reports. "We've got to get this right," she said, insisting she's more electable candidate. Clinton also pressed the point that all votes—as in Michigan and Florida—must be counted. "I'm going to continue making the case until we have a nominee, whoever she may be."

Clinton also noted that while she and Barack Obama have gone "toe to toe," they see "eye to eye" on the need to elect a Democrat to the White House. She began her speech with an homage to Ted Kennedy, saying he's paved the way for both her and Obama.
