"Thank you Nevada," she said as she took to the stage to greet her supporters. "I am so thrilled and so grateful to all of my supporters out there some may have doubted us, but we never doubted each other," she said. "Americans are right to be angry, but we are also hungry for real solutions," she said. With 57 percent of the precincts reporting, Clinton was leading with 52 percent of the vote to Sanders' 48 percent. Vote counting was delayed in Nevada by heavy turnout. Clinton's narrow victory in Nevada where she was once expected to win by double digits suggested the Democratic nominating race could be long and hard-fought, with Sanders performing strongly in a state with a heavy minority population.
