The Democratic primary continues with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigning heavily in Pennsylvania, the next state to hold its primary on April 22nd. After Pennsylvania votes the only remaining states to hold primaries are Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Montana, and South Dakota.
Since neither candidate appears able to win enough pledged delegates to clinch the nomination, the Democratic nominee will likely be decided by the Democratic party’s superdelegates and both candidates have been trying to make the case that they are the person best able to defeat the presumptive Republican nominee John McCain.
