ABC News’ Kate Snow Reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton visited staff at her headquarters in Arlington, Virginia Wednesday just after most of them had been told they would no longer have to report to work after Friday.
A staffer who was in the room said she invited all of her campaign staff to come to her home on Friday.
Before Clinton arrived, the staff was told that they would be paid through June 15th. But the bulk of the staff was told their last day of work would be Friday.
Junior staffers were emotional and some were crying and as Clinton left her headquarters, she waved to cameras outside.
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., claimed victory in their the tightly contested Democratic nomination battle on Tuesday, after the votes from South Dakota and Montana were counted.
