Hoosiers: Make Your Voice Heard – Vote Today!
On Tuesday, May 6th, North Carolina and Indiana will hold their (respective) primary elections.
As the number of state elections dwindle, the race between Illinois Senator, Barack Obama, and New York Senator, Hillary Clinton, tightens. Senator Obama has maintained a slight but consistent lead over Senator Clinton throughout the campaign. But, Clinton’s wins in pivotal states such as Ohio, Texas and Pennsylvania have brought the contest to a virtual tie.
I ask my fellow Hoosiers to make your voice heard. Exorcise your franchise – VOTE!
