Clinton: Bet on the filly

From NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli
LOUISVILLE, Kent. -- Perhaps signaling her intention to fight on beyond next Tuesday's contests in Indiana and North Carolina, Hillary Clinton paid a visit to her Kentucky campaign headquarters this afternoon.

"We're working hard in Indiana and North Carolina," she told staff and volunteers in the small storefront office. "Then we got to West Virginia and the we'll be right here. We've got lots of great support for us around the state."

She said that she was sorry that she would miss the Kentucky Derby, but noted that Chelsea would be on hand.
 
"I want everybody to place a little money on the filly," she said.

Clinton also paid a visit to the editorial board of the Louisville Courier-Journal, the largest newspaper in Kentucky. It also has readership in the southeastern Indiana.

Kentucky votes on May 20.
