Obama Wins N.C., Indiana Too Early To Call

Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) has defeated Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) in the North Carolina presidential primary.

Obama's win was thanks in large part to black voters, who cast over 30 percent of the total vote. Exit polls indicate that over 90 percent of those African American voters supported Obama.

Indiana now shapes up as a must-win race for Clinton as she seeks to continue the campaign to West Virginia next week and, perhaps, all the way until June 3 and beyond. With nearly one-fifth of the Indiana vote counted, Clinton led Obama in Indiana 57 percent to 43 percent.
