Hillary Clinton’s defiant campaign chair said several states are still “too close to call” and the Democratic nominee “is not done yet.”

“It’s been a long campaign but I can say we can wait a little longer, can’t we?” John Podesta said at the Javitz Center. “She’s done an amazing job and she is not done yet.

“They’re still counting votes and every vote should count. Several states are too close to call so we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight.”

He urged Clinton supporters to “head home” and sleep.

“We’ll have more to say tomorrow,” he said. “I want you to know.. your voices and your enthusiasm mean so much to her and to Tim and to all of us. We are so proud of you. And we are so proud of her.”

Podesta spoke after Donald Trump all but secured the presidency, clinching the state of Pennsylvania.

It Seems To Have Become “The Normal in America” That Democrats Are Sore Losers

Hillary Clinton isn’t giving a concession speech tonight, her campaign chairman John Podesta said.

“Several states are too close to call, so we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight,” he told Clinton supporters at the Javits Center in New York after 2am Eastern Time. Around 2:40am, CNN reported that Clinton had phoned Trump to congratulate him.

It hasn’t taken this long to deliver a concession speech in a presidential race since 2004 when John Kerry conceded the afternoon after polling day. In 2000, of course, Al Gore took more than a month to concede after an aborted recount and Supreme Court ruling. Here are the times for when losing presidential candidates have conceded going back to 1980:

Candidate Time (EST)
Jimmy Carter (1980) 10 pm
George Bush (1992) 11 pm
Michael Dukakis (1988) 11:15 pm
Walter Mondale (1984) 11:20 pm
Bob Dole (1996) 11:25 pm
John McCain (2008) 11:20 pm
Mitt Romney (2012) 11:00 pm
John Kerry (2004) 1:50 pm (+1 day)
Al Gore (2000) 9 pm (+36 days)

Meanwhile, France’s Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Front, has already congratulated Trump on winning.

Hillary Clinton will not be delivering her concession speech tonight

Podesta walks off. No campaign has ever ended like this….

Upon further reflection…..

Hillary Clinton publicly conceded the election to Donald J. Trump on Wednesday, acknowledging the pain of the defeat in remarks in New York while calling on her supporters to accept that he would be president and give him a chance to lead with an open mind.

President Obama, speaking in Washington, also said that he would work to ensure a smooth transition to a Trump administration and that, despite their differences, we are “all rooting for his success.”

Speaker Paul D. Ryan proclaimed that Mr. Trump had achieved a political feat and earned a mandate by reaching new voters. Mr. Ryan said that he was certain that they would work well together on a conservative policy agenda.
