Clinton to say Obama has delegates to secure nomination-AP
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is "absolutely not" olanning to concede the campaign to Barack Obama on Tuesday night, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe told CNN on Tuesday.

"No one has the number to be the nominee of the Democratic party right now," he said.

McAuliffe, asked about an AP report that Clinton will acknowlege Tuesday night after the South Dakota and Montana primaries that Obama has the delegates to clinch the nomination for the November presidential election, replied: "They are 100 percent incorrect."

AP report

Hillary Clinton will say on Tuesday night that her rival Barack Obama has enough delegates to secure the U.S. Democratic Party presidential nomination, the Associated Press reported.

But Clinton, who is trailing Obama in the five-month state-by-state nominating contest, will stop short of formally suspending or ending her White House bid, AP said, quoting two senior campaign officials.

The AP report came as the last two states, Montana and South Dakota, were voting in the nominating contests that have put Obama within a few dozen delegates of the number he needs to clinch the nomination.

The AP report quoted the campaign officials as saying that for all intents and purposes, Clinton's campaign was over.
