Hillary Clinton added big bucks to her campaign war chest heading into
Tuesday's must-win primaries in Texas and Ohio. The New York senator raised $35 million in February alone. Her biggest one-month total since the campaign began.
Barack Obama hasn't released his fundraising totals from February yet, but top aides say they've raised more than the Clinton campaign. And Obama is outspending her in Texas and Ohio.
Clinton gave a pep talk to supporters who turned out in huge numbers for a rally last night in Houston.
"I have a feeling its beginning to grow. We're going to make it happen on Tuesday night," said Clinton.
Obama says the Democratic race isn't over. Yet, in his speeches he's not targeting Clinton. He's going after John McCain.
"I may honor his service, but his policies are wrong. His policies are looking backward, we need to look forward," said Obama.
Senator McCain is keeping his focus on the war in Iraq, hoping it will
establish him as the candidate with the experience to lead.
"We will win the war, and we will win it fairly soon," said McCain.
The Arizona Republican has been trying to clarify his statement that the U.S. would have a presence in Iraq for 100-years. McCain says he intended to say that American forces will remain long after the war is over.
And Mike Huckabee is sticking around, he won't exit the race until McCain has the delegates he needs to clinch the nomination.
