    Clinton Indiana-Obama N. Carolina

    07 May 2008 11:16:00

    By Athina Saloustrou

    Sources: Reuters

    TV networks MSNBC and CNN report that Hillary Clinton scored an easy victory in a split fight for the Democratic presidential nomination in Indiana with 51% of votes in contrast to 29% gathered by Barack Obama, (639.192 to 615.713 votes). With 100% of votes counted in N. Carolina Obama was the winner (56% to Clintons 42%). According to CNN, Clinton leads on delegates (37) in Indiana while Obama follows with 33. In North Carolina, 45 delegates support Obama and 37 are in favor of Clinton. Political analysts note that Indiana results are not favorable for Clinton as the difference between the two candidates is smaller than what Hillary expected to be. Her slim margin in Indiana and loss in North Carolina raises fresh questions about the viability of her effort to overtake Obamas lead in delegates and popular votes won in the nominating race.
