TEXAS AND OHIO
This is the big day in Democratic politics. If Hillary doesn’t do well in the Texas and Ohio primaries, will she drop out? Some people are urging her to back out gracefully. Any attacks she makes on Barack could be used by the Republicans in the general election in the fall. She insists that she has just begun the fight. Tomorrow the political landscape could look very different. Or not.
No one is urging Dr Carl Perrin to drop out of the race. Frankly most people don’t even know that he is still in the race, but he is wondering whether he has a chance of picking up even one delegate. He knows that he has no chance of winning in Texas, but Ohio is a different thing. He lived in Defiance, Ohio, for nine years and taught at Defiance College. He earned his Ph.D. at Ohio State University.
The former English professor knows that he can’t win in Ohio, but he is still desperately hoping he can pick up at least one or two delegates. Insiders say that if he doesn’t get any votes, he will consider dropping out of the race. Perrin himself will not confirm this. “Don’t count me out,” he says grimly.
