Obama Visits Indiana, Hoping for a Win
By Eli Saslow
INDIANAPOLIS -- The final appearance of Barack Obama's presidential campaign stood in stark contrast to the mammoth rallies for which his candidacy has become known. Obama flew Tuesday morning to Indianapolis for a last-minute trip that his campaign kept secret until near departure. He stopped in at the UAW Local 550 Union Hall, a small room set up with Obama posters and calling stations.
Obama chatted with a few dozen volunteers working in the room and talked on the phone to about 10 voters. About 30 minutes later -- before he headed back to his plane, back to Chicago, back to monitor the Election Day results -- Obama paused long enough to take one final question from a traveling reporter.
Did he think he could win Indiana?
"I think we can win," he said. "Otherwise, I wouldn't be in Indiana."
