MIAMI — Hillary Clinton hopes she just put Bernie Sanders in the rearview window.
Notching win after win on Super Tuesday, Clinton will leave Sanders far behind in the battle to secure the 2,383 delegates needed to win the party's nomination. So far, Sanders has picked up just two victories, one in his home state of Vermont, and a second in Oklahoma where Sanders campaigned heavily and his campaign spent aggressively on ads.
A buoyant Clinton took the stage to claim victory just before 9 p.m. ET, saying "what a Super Tuesday" and declaring that Democrats across the country "voted to break down barriers so we can all rise together."
