Clinton Wins Pa.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) has claimed a much-needed victory over Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) in tonight's Pennsylvania Democratic primary, ensuring the race for the party's nomination will continue through at least May 6 when Indiana and North Carolina vote.

Having claimed victory, Clinton now awaits the margin of that win. With 42 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton led 55 percent to 45 percent.

A small single digit win will be seen as a wash and a victory of sorts for Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.). A broader victory will validate Clinton's claims that she belongs in the contest and that voters have yet to make a final decision on which candidate they want representing the Democratic Party in the fall.
