(NBC NEWS) Despite a tightening race, Hillary Clinton said Sunday she's confident she'll secure the Democratic nomination, dismissing speculation that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seeking an independent bid for the White House.
"He's a good friend of mine," Clinton said. "The way I read what he said is if I didn't get the nomination, he might consider it. Well, I'm going to relieve him of that and get the nomination so he doesn't have to."
With only 8 days until the Iowa caucuses, Clinton said she feels "great" about her ground game in the state, which is working to ensure enthusiasm is "not just here today, gone tomorrow."
