Clinton Will Concede Delegate Race to Obama

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton will concede Tuesday
night that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic
nomination, campaign officials said, effectively ending her bid to
be the nation's first female president.
The former first lady will stop short of formally suspending or
ending her race in her speech in New York City. She will pledge to
continue to speak out on issues like health care. But for all
intents and purposes, the two senior officials said, the campaign
is over.
Most campaign staff will be let go and will be paid through June
15, said the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to divulge her plans.
