Barack Obama won in North Carolina, righting his campaign after a rough patch fuelled by his comments on small-town residents and a controversy over racially-charged comments by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Hillary Clinton took Indiana on Tuesday, a split decision that prolonged the rival Democrats’ White House race.
The two states, with a combined 187 delegates to the Democratic Party nominating convention, were the biggest prizes left in the race to pick the party’s presidential candidate for November’s election. Only six contests remain.
Tuesday’s split decision left the race largely unchanged before the last six contests, which have 217 delegates at stake
