Clinton Campaign Winding Down

Clinton is recalling her advance staff to New York for one last day before they call it quits, according to Ben Smith at Politico. Clinton will hold her last primary event in New York City on Tuesday night when the results come out. Her staff expect her to return to Washington, D.C. the next day.

Even though she’s letting staff go, we shouldn’t necessarily assume that she’s about to concede (for example, as Marc Ambinder and TIME hint). There aren’t any states left to campaign in and she’s out of money anyway. All that’s really left to do is keep making calls to superdelegates in which she pleads electibility and popular vote.

I expect that we’ll know if she decides to Take. It. All. The. Way. by the end of the week. Either she will have conceded when Obama declares victory or she’s going to fight at the convention.
