Networks Call Ohio for Clinton
By Perry Bacon Jr.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Hillary Clinton started off the day sidestepping questions about whether she would stay in the race if she didn't do well in Ohio and Texas in a bunch of predawn satellite interviews.
By early evening, in another series of interviews, she was casting herself as the comeback girl.
"I feel really good about Ohio and Texas," she said during an interview this evening. "I've been counted out before. It seems to be a recurring phenomenon."
There were hugs and shouts of Hillary! all over this downtown ballroom as CNN called the state for Clinton. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, who campaigned across the state with Clinton even though her follow African Americans had turned sharply towards Obama, credited Clinton's victory to frenetic campaigning and a sharper focus on Barack Obama's alleged faults by the press for the win.
"We got people to focus more on him," Jones said.
