Clinton Campaign Chair Says Hillary "Is Not Done Yet," Sends Rally Crowd Home Without Addressing Results

"We are so proud of her," he said. "She has done an amazing job and she is not done yet."

Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta spoke to a crowd of supporters in New York, saying that the Clinton campaign would have nothing further to say about the election Tuesday. 

Clinton chose not to deliver the speech on Tuesday night, instead sending Podesta to her New York venue to speak on her behalf. In a brief message to the crowd, he promised that he and Clinton will "have more to say tomorrow." 

"We are so proud of her," he said. "She has done an amazing job and she is not done yet."

"We can wait a little longer — can't we? They're still counting votes and every vote should count."

Also notable is that for the first time in over 70 years, two major-party candidates are New Yorkers, which means the presidential opponents are ringing in the results a mere two miles apart. 

At the West Side's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the Hillary for America Election Night Event kicked off at 6 p.m. ET. The Democratic nominee's event is under a symbolic glass ceiling within the six-block fortress, a nod to her potential to make history as the first female president of the United States.
