Hillary Bails on Her Own Election Party, Podesta Tells Everyone To Go Home

Democrat Hillary Clinton won't be showing up at her own election party tonight after Republican Donald Trump broke down her blue wall and beat her in the electoral college. 

Early Wednesday morning, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta moved across Manhattan to deliver a message without his candidate by his side. 

"They're still counting votes and every vote should count," Podesta told a crying, half empty crowd. "We'll have more to say tomorrow."

"Go home, get some sleep."

They're getting the lawyers ready to look at contesting close states.
