Obama Clinton Wisconsin Race Close

February 18, 2008

Hillary Clinton isn't ready to concede Wisconsin.

"I am asking for your help tomorrow," said Clinton

From teachers, to cheese heads, she's courting all voters.

While Clinton's camp has down-played her chances in Tuesday's primary. The race is competitive and a first place finish would give her some much needed momentum ahead of big March 4th contests in Texas and Ohio.

On the stump, the New York senator armed herself with a new blueprint for fixing the economy.

"The middle class is the backbone of America and it is time we started taking care of the middle class again," said Clinton.

The economy is also on Obama's mind. He spent the first part of the day touring a manufacturing plant in Ohio.

Campaign watchers are buzzing about Obama's weekend jaunt to North Carolina, where he met with former White House hopeful, John Edwards.

The Illinois Senator is remaining tight-lipped about a possible Edwards' endorsement, but on the GOP side, John McCain showcased his latest high-profile supporter.

"No one is better prepared to lead our nation in these trying times than John McCain" said former President George H.W. Bush.

The former president said criticism that McCain isn't conservative enough is unfair. The presumptive Republican nominee still faces a challenge from Mike Huckabee. Both men are campaigning in Wisconsin ahead of Tuesday's vote.
