From NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli and NBC's Mark Murray
Campaigning in Maysville, KY this morning, Clinton just said, "I believe that with your help, we will send a message to this country -- because right now more people have voted for me than have voted for my opponent. More people have voted for me than for anybody ever running for president before. So we have a very close contest. The votes, the delegates. And this is nowhere near over. None of us are going to have the number of delegates we need to get to the nomination. Although I understand my opponent and his supporters are going to claim that."
In another sign that the Clinton campaign won't be throwing in the towel anytime soon, it has announced its first TV ad in South Dakota, which has its contest on June 3.
Here's the script of the 30-second ad, which focuses on the economy:
Hillary Clinton: The Bush economy is like a trapdoor.
Too many families are one pink slip, one missed mortgage payment, one medical diagnosis away from falling through and losing everything.
The oil companies, the predatory student loan companies, the insurance companies and the drug companies have had seven years of a president who stands up for them.
I intend to be a president who stands up for all of you.
