Barack Obama was in Greenwood and Indianapolis early Tuesday before moving on to North Carolina, and here in South Bend, his supporters are certainly pumped-up about the primary.

Obama supporters have been doing everything they can to get people out to polling places like the one at the Westside Democratic Club.

Many volunteers have been canvassing this area trying to give potential voters that friendly reminder that today is primary day.

It was like a revolving door at Obama's headquarters Tuesday as volunteers hit the pavement and the phones.

Many of them hope Obama can deliver a knock-out punch with strong wins in Indiana and North Carolina.

Others expect the race to last all the way to the end no matter the results.

But many seemed confident, including one of Obama’s biggest supporters in the Hoosier state, former Congressman Tim Roemer.

"You know its a jump ball in our parlance here in Indiana, you know anybody can get this loose ball, Senator Obama’s been fighting hard for it. It's exciting, the people are out there voting they’re in long lines, they're making a difference and that's what the political system is all about.," said former Congressman Tim Roemer (D).

Obama supporter Max Westler said "I think he actually can bring people together in a way Hillary cannot. I think he represents something that I haven't felt in this country since Robert Kennedy and I think Hillary represents more of the same, Michael Dukakis in a skirt.”

Obama supporters plan to be in full force at a watch-party at the Westside Democratic Club after the polls close and the results start coming in.
