Keeping the drive alive, Barak Obama easily beat Hillary Clinton in the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday.
Clinton was in Ohio last night as returns came in, stumping in a state that has, along with Texas, become a must-win on Mar. 4 in order for Clinton to have a realistic hope of winning the nomination.
Listen to ABC’s Steven Portnoy traveling with the Clinton campaign.
Obama scored heavily among voters from Hillary Clinton’s traditional base. In a state with few black voters, Obama won by a 58% to 41% margin, receiving 645,554 votes to Clinton’s 452,590. The win netted Obama 42 delegates to Clinton’s 32.
The race is still neck and neck, but momentum is clearly on the Obama side. As we have been saying, March 4 in Texas looms larger and larger for the Clinton campaign.
