It Looks That Way
To the question I asked yesterday, "Is Obama Gaining Ground On Clinton’s Turf?", the answer appears to be yes.
Check out The Washington Post coverage of the results of Tuesday’s Potomac Primary:
Obama won among men, among women and among union voters. He won big among the affluent, educated voters in the District’s suburbs, but he also won convincingly among rural voters and small-town Democrats.
The Obama camp was quick to pick up that thread this morning, looking ahead to next Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary. The state is the kind of mostly white, mostly working-class place that the Clinton campaign has drawn its strongest support from.
"By their own definition, we assume they will compete in there vigorously," Obama campaign manager David Plouffe told reporters on a conference call this morning.
Obama is in Wisconsin today. Clinton is spending the next couple of days in Texas and Ohio and then she’ll go to Wisconsin, too. But the Clinton campaign is increasingly banking on a big win March 4 in Texas, where it hopes lots of Latinos will turn out for her, as they have elsewhere. A win in Ohio, the same day, would also help turn the tide.
