With less than a month until the May 6th primary, the Democratic presidential campaigns are hitting Indiana hard. This week alone, the candidates or their surrogates are in more than a dozen cities, and the pace is likely to get even more frenetic as the election approaches.
This week's trips include a six-city bus tour by Barack Obama, who started in South Bend late Wednesday and will wrap up tomorrow in Muncie, and a southwestern Indiana swing by former President Bill Clinton. They come less than a week after 14,000 people attended a Dave Matthews concert in Bloomington supporting Obama and a three-day sweep of college campuses by former first daughter Chelsea Clinton.
There's also a four-city swing by retired General Wesley Clark, who sought the nomination in 2004 and now is stumping for Clinton, and Hillary Rodham Clinton's own three-city tour tomorrow.
