There's a big primary double-header on tap for tomorrow..Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are crisscrossing Indiana and North Carolina looking for last minute votes.
Hillary Clinton needs a one-two punch in order to keep her campaign alive and a new poll is putting momentum in her corner. For the first time in three
months, her national standing is ahead of Barack Obama's.
"I don't spend too much time worrying about polls. What I spend time doing is
listening to what families across Indiana and North Carolina are telling me," said Obama.
Many analysts expect Obama to win North Carolina and Clinton Indiana but
both races are super tight.
"I think we've made up a lot of ground in the last weeks. These are two states everyone said my opponent would win handily and I think we've turned them into very competitive contests," Senator Hillary Clinton.
The run for the White House has been a roller coaster ride for both
candidates with the latest curve in voter opinion attributed to Obama's
controversial former pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
But now that the Illinois Senator has cut ties with Wright, he is focusing on
issues that matter to working Americans slamming Clinton's proposal to
suspend the federal gas tax for the summer.
"It's a stunt, its what Washington does, this isn't the first time it's been
proposed, it's proposed every two years," said Obama.
Clinton claims her gas plan is misunderstood.
"I want the big oil to pay for it out of their record profits," said Clinton.
It's a race to the finish and the Clinton's are going the extra mile. Former president Bill Clinton has nine campaign stops Monday alone.
