Primary Update

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Barack Obama is spending the day at home in Chicago after his double-digit win in North Carolina's primary. Hillary Clinton will be back on the campaign trail after a two-point victory in Indiana.

Clinton has a noontime appearance in West Virginia, the site of a primary next Tuesday. Tomorrow, she'll campaign in West Virginia, South Dakota and Oregon.

Overnight, Obama sent an e-mail, telling potential donors: "We have a clear path to victory." He's now less than 200 delegates shy of the number needed to secure the Democratic nomination.

Clinton also made a fundraising pitch, telling cheering supporters in Indianapolis last night: "I need your help to continue our journey." She vowed to compete tenaciously for West Virginia next week and Kentucky and Oregon after that, and to press "full speed on to the White House."

Obama's campaign is dropping broad hints that it's time for the 270 remaining unaligned party figures known as superdelegates to get off the fence and settle the nomination.
