Sen. Hillary Clinton is focusing on the high points of the last week — her Super Tuesday successes in weighty states like New York and California, for example — and looking to potential wins in Texas and other elections to hold her position in the race for the Democratic nomination in coming weeks.

Speaking to reporters after touring a General Motors plant outside Baltimore, Clinton said she feels very good about the state of the race, even though she is not expected to win between now and March 4, when voters in Texas and Ohio cast ballots.

“We had a great night on Super Tuesday,” Clinton said, referring to the 22 states that voted Feb. 5. Clinton won eight states to Obama’s 13 but scored in many of the biggest contests including New York, California, Massachusetts and New Jersey. And they divided the delegates almost evenly.

“I believe if you look at the states … upcoming, I am very confident.”

The former first lady said the decision by Patti Solis Doyle to step down as campaign manager was personal and reflected the toll of the long campaign, not a problem with her job performance.

“I have the greatest respect and affection for her,” Clinton said. “I’m grateful for the enormously successful job that she’s done.”
