Hillary Clinton said she’s welcoming the rivalry that’s developed with her closest Democratic opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, NBC News reported.
In an interview with NBC News, Clinton accused Sanders of “trying to go negative” with ads accusing Wall Street of trying to buy off politicians. She suggested Sanders’ platform is based on unrealistic goals and said she offered a “more clear agenda that can actually produce results.”
The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist Poll of likely Democratic primary voters shows Clinton leading Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent, a statistical dead heat.
Clinton said she wasn’t concerned about losing Iowa and New Hampshire, saying she was “in it for the long haul.”
