Clinton sees primary victory in Ohio

February 26, 2008 9:59:23 AM PST
Former President Bill Clinton is telling supporters it's looking like Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will win the high-stakes primary in Ohio next week. Clinton told a crowd of about 200 in Dallas on Tuesday that if the former first lady can also capture the Texas primary on March 4, then his wife will win the Democratic nomination and give Americans more prosperity than they had during his term as president.

The rally was the first in a six-stop swing for Clinton at early voting locations around Dallas and Fort Worth. After arriving more than an hour late, he stood in the bed of a pickup truck and urged supporters to cast their ballots now.

The March 4 primaries loom as make-or-break contests for the slumping Clinton, who has lost 11 consecutive primaries and caucuses to rival Barack Obama's surging popularity. She is counting on victories in delegate-rich Texas and Ohio to revive her campaign.
