The mood here? Anything but bitter after North Carolina was called for Obama as soon as the polls closed, although in Indiana, Hillary Clinton was reported leading by double digits with nearly one-third of precincts reporting.
Local volunteer Dana Stewart is standing outside on Queen Street here, holding up a campaign sign and shouting “Obama!” at passing motorists. Stewart says he got a warm reception when he visited nearby Shepherd College to pass out campaign literature. “Those students were coming up to me left and right,” he said.
The Obama campaign is well-organized here in West Virginia, even though Hillary is expected to win the state. Local precinct captain Robert Scalf said he’d been “knocking on doors” canvassing his precinct for the past two weeks.
