Voting Begins In Indiana And North Carolina
May 6, 2008, 7:11 AM
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama predict the Democratic presidential contest will go on for at least another month, no matter the outcome of voting today in North Carolina and Indiana.
Obama promised graveyard shift workers at an auto parts plant in Indianapolis he'll be their advocate, while Clinton told a late night rally in Evansville the issue is "jobs, jobs, jobs."
Clinton has proposed a summer-long gas tax holiday in an effort to secure the support of her blue-collar base. Obama is dismissing the plan as a "stunt." His stance is backed up by 230 economists, including Nobel Prize winners, who oppose the temporary tax break.
Obama is favored to win North Carolina but his lead has shrunk. Polls show Clinton with a small lead in Indiana.
Altogether, 187 delegates are at stake in the two states.
