Hillary advises her fellow dems to pick a candidate that could win the electoral college. Hillary said winning the popular vote is not enough.
Hillary Clinton on Monday urged Democrats to choose a nominee who can win the Electoral College in 2020.
"We have to hope that whoever ends up nominated can win the Electoral College," she said at a discussion of her book, "The Book of Gutsy Women," in Denver.
"I think several of our candidates could win the popular vote but as I know ... that's not enough," added the 2016 Democratic nominee.
"I don't think we have a choice; we have to win" in 2020, she said, speaking alongside her daughter and co-author Chelsea Clinton at a sold-out event.
She urged a supportive crowd of almost 2,000 people to "work hard for your preference in the primary" but "close ranks behind whoever is nominated."
