Bill: It Is Do or Die For Hillary in Texas

Wednesday, 20 Feb 2008 05:44 PM

Former President Bill Clinton told supporters at a rally in Galveston Wednesday that the Texas and Ohio primary elections will decide who the Democratic Party's presidential nominee will be.

"This whole nomination process has come down to Texas and Ohio," Clinton told a crowd of about 300 Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters. "If she wins Texas and Ohio I think she will be the nominee. If you don't deliver for her, I don't think she can be. It's all on you."

Hillary Clinton fell behind in the delegate count after Sen. Barack Obama gained his ninth straight primary victory Tuesday in Wisconsin. Clinton has 1,233 delegates to Obama's 1,303. The nominee needs 2,025 delegates.

Hillary Clinton and Obama are battling over Texas's 228 delegates and Ohio's 161 delegates in the March 4 primary election. Primary voters in Rhode Island, with 32 delegates, and Vermont, with 23 delegates, also will chose a candidate March 4.

"Clinton could win the statewide vote, but she could still just break even or end up behind in the delegate count," said Martin Frost, a former congressman from Dallas who is neutral in the presidential race. "The press is playing attention to who wins the delegates, so that will be important."
