Tighter Race for Clinton and Obama

Ad Feedback

Chicago, Ill. - Barack Obama won more states than Hillary Clinton, but the New York senator won more delegates.

Click on the video player for CBN News reporter John Jessup's report on the tight race between the two Democratic contenders.

Hillary Clinton took home the trophy prize of Super Tuesday, scoring a double-digit win in California, where 370 delegates were up for grabs.

"Tonight, you voted not just to make history, but to remake America," Clinton told her supporters on Super Tuesday.

But the nomination is still a long way off.

While Clinton won other key states, like New York, Massachusetts and Arizona, Obama showed that he was in it to fight, picking up states in the South, West and his home state of Illinois.

Obama told supporters last night that his wins prove his electability, and that he can deliver what Democratic voters want most - change.

"Our time has come," Obama said. "Our plan is real, and change is coming to America."

For Clinton, it's all about experience.

"We know what we need," she proclaimed at her headquarters in New York. "Someone who is ready on day one."

Exit polls show Clinton got her strongest support yesterday from women and Hispanic voters.

For Obama, it was youth, blacks and more appeal with white men.

In the end, the momentum swing the Obama campaign had been experiencing over the past few days didn't produce the big win they were hoping for.

But they still believe they're in it to compete.

They say the longer the race drags out, the better their chances are for securing the nomination by reaching out to a broad array of voters - Democrats, Republicans and Independents - as the candidate for change,
