At Speedway, Clinton Says to Put it in D

By Perry Bacon Jr.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Appearing at the motor speedway in Indianapolis, Sen. Hillary Clinton appeared with Sarah Fisher, who is one of the top women in the sport.

"I'm here to see Sarah, who is a trailblazer," Clinton said as two women stood side by side in front of open-wheel race car that had been specially painted blue and had Clinton's name on it. "I am honored to have her support."

Fisher, who endorsed Clinton, last week, declared "I voted this morning" and smiled at Clinton.

The New York senator, at her last public event before results come in from today's crucial primaries here and in North Carolina, sidestepped questions from reporters about how she would do in the race or if she would stay in if she lost both states. Asked which number -- 2,025 or 2,209 -- was the real number of delegates the Democratic nominee would need to win to get the nomination, she said "I think it's 2,209" and repeated her view that the results of primaries in Michigan and Florida should be honored.

Asked about why she was the speedway, she said "there's a good racing analogy. If you want to go forward, put it on D -- if you want to go backwards, put it in R."

Fisher then added, "Just so you know, we don't have reverse on this car."
