And if she felt spurned by New Hampshire voters, she didn’t show it to supporters in Hooksett, New Hampshire.

She told them: “I still love New Hampshire, and I always will.”

Clinton went on to congratulate Sanders on his first-place finish in the primary on Tuesday night.

But for the former secretary of state, she said it’s time to get back to the issues: campaign finance reform, equal pay for women and the lead-tainted drinking water in Flint, Michigan.

Clinton also urged younger voters to support her campaign, saying she knows she has “some work to do particularly with young people.”
