It was on to Indiana for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Wednesday, in the wake of the New York Senator's ten-percentage point win over Obama Tuesday night. Indiana and North Carolina are next on the primary slate May 6th.. with Obama strongly favored in both states.
But Clinton was the one smiling. On the heels of the early network projections of her Pennsylvania win, Clinton staffers watched $1 million in online donations fill the coffers quickly. That total became $3.5 million once her victory was sealed. By midday Wednesday, the Hillary Clinton for President Campaigncounted more than $10 million dollars raised overnight. It was the largest money-raising day of her effort. They could use the win, and the cash. The Clinton Campaign reported a $10 million debt racked up in March, while Obama is still flush with $40 million in the bank.
Obama has always held a comfortable lead over Clinton in the North Carolina polls, and is expecting a Hoosier state victory in less than two weeks because he's from a neighboring state.
