ABC News’ Eloise Harper reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., took the stage in a bright red suit with her daughter Chelsea and President Clinton by her side — at the last minute victory party at the Planet Hollywood hotel in Las Vegas.

"I guess this is how the West was won!" Clinton screamed to adoring crowds.

Clinton was previously scheduled to fly to Missouri for a rally, but stuck around for the victory speech.

After complaints from Clinton, and her campaign, of voter intimidation, Clinton thanked the culinary workers who supported her today.

"I am particularly grateful for all of the members of the culinary union who stood with me today," Clinton said. "But I want to say we will all be united in November to beat the Republicans."

Clinton also thanked her husband and daughter for their support. "Today, I certainly have to thank my two greatest supporters — my husband and my daughter." Clinton spoke only for a few minutes, and then greeted the crowd of supporters.
