ABC News’ Kate Snow Reports: As news of Sen. Barack Obama’s, D-Ill., triumph in the Democratic nomination battle travels across the nation, camp Clinton isn’t hearing any of it.
Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is holding her election night event at New York Baruch College Athletic & Recreation Center in New York — the first time the candidate has not been in a contested or about to be contested state during the entire primary process.
Other than the fact that we are 2 stories below ground in a cinderblock no-frills gym on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, there are also NO televisions.
There have been large screen TV’s at every one of Clinton’s election night events. Her supporters watch the results come in, they cheer when they’re shown on screen.
Tonight, no TV’s, cell phones and blackberries don’t work down here…no contact with the outside world. People in here cannot see the ongoing countdown clocks on the cable channels. They didn’t know when Obama has crossed the threshold.
