CHARLESTON, W.Va., May 14 (UPI) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton said her resounding victory in West Virginia Democratic Party primary is more evidence she should be her party's presidential nominee.

"I am more determined than ever to carry on this campaign, until everyone has had a chance to make their voices heard," Clinton, D-N.Y., told her supporters in Charleston, W.Va. "This race isn't over yet."

With 100 percent of Tuesday's vote counted, Clinton, D-N.Y., defeated Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., by 67 percent to 27 percent, according to CNN. With only 29 delegates at stake in the contest, Clinton's lopsided win won't do much to cut into Obama's lead in that category -- she reported collected 20 of the deleagates. However, Clinton said the West Virginia results have renewed her determination to press on her campaign.

Clinton's strategy is to convince superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention that she is more electable than Obama, Howard Wolfson, Clinton's communication director, told CNN.

"We think we're going to be the nominee," he said. "We're going to make our case to the superdelegates."
