Obama Campaign: Primary Contest Will Soon “Come to a Close”


The Obama campaign has exhibited excellent message control throughout the primary process. Saturday’s Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting was no exception. The campaign’s two official representatives at the meeting, Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.) and David Bonior, a former member of Congress from Michigan, made sure to slip one telling claim into their testimony: that the primary contest will soon “come to a close.” Even while they’re arguing this issue out, the Obama people are still looking towards the general election.
