Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton acknowledged Sunday that many voters question whether she is a self-serving politician who is more interested in achieving her own goal of being president than truly helping the country.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Mrs. Clinton — who defeated Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses and reclaimed momentum in the Democratic primary — said she still has work to do in convincing voters that she will work for them if elected.

“I understand voters have questions. I’m going to do my vert best to answer those questions. I think there’s an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people’s minds, and that is, you know, ‘Is she in it for us, or is she in it for herself?’” Mrs. Clinton said. “I think that’s a question people are trying to sort through. I’m going to demonstrate that I’ve always been the same person, fighting for the same values … long before I was ever in elected office, even before my husband was in the presidency.

“So, I know I have to make my case, I have to demonstrate what I’ve achieved. I have to really make clear that we want to make progress in our country. We want to make a real difference in people’s lives. That’s what I’ve always been about, that’s what I would do as president.”
