Hillary Clinton Narrowly Wins Indiana

Hillary Rodham Clinton has eked out a narrow victory over Barack Obama in Indiana's Democratic primary.

The tallies from 99 percent of the Indiana precincts showed Clinton with 51 percent to Obama's 49 percent. That margin is a little more than 22,000 votes of the more than 1.2 million cast.

The outcome wasn't clear for more than six hours after the polls closed. The uncertainty stemmed from slow counting in Lake County near Obama's home city of Chicago.

Before the race was called for her, Clinton declared victory and told supporters "it's full speed on to the White House."

Obama won at least 69 delegates, while Clinton grabbed at least 63 in the two states, with 55 still to be awarded. The Illinois senator leads Clinton in the overall delegate count by more than 143.
