Barack Obama has scored a clear win in the Democratic presidential primary in North Carolina, while Hillary Clinton has narrowly won the Indiana primary.
Senator Obama won 56% of the vote in North Carolina, while Senator Clinton won 51% of the vote in Indiana. Both votes were the final major Democratic primaries which help decide the party’s White House candidate.
Neither scored a knock-out blow, but analysts say Mr. Obama’s lead looks increasingly unassailable. A win in Indiana was seen as critical for Mrs. Clinton if she was to stay in the race to stand against Republican John McCain in November’s presidential vote.
About time for those two to find the middle ground and go for McCain instead of each other!
