With the Pennsylvania Democratic primary over and done, the focus shifts to Indiana’s primary in two weeks.

After a full-day of calling people on the phone Tuesday to drum up support for Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Wilson was almost set to call it quits for the night.

But not before going over the plan for today, which is basically more calling to potential supporters for her candidate for president. After Clinton’s big win over Illinois U.S. Senator Barack Obama yesterday, Wilson, of Dyer, Indiana, says she feels re-energized to keep going.

WILSON: I’m 34 years old and I’ve never experienced this. People want a change. Not just a change but a safe change.

Clinton will return to Indiana today. On Friday, she’ll visit the Northwest Indiana cities of East Chicago and Gary, a city considered a major stronghold for Obama. Obama, meanwhile, spent the night in the far southern Indiana city of Evansville, where he watched the Pennsylvania returns.

He remains ahead in the delegate count which means the May 6 Indiana primary is shaping up to be not only an important day in the presidential race, but a truly historic day for the Hoosier state.
