Why Obama won big in North Dakota

WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:

While Hillary Clinton was taking some of the biggest states in the country last night, Barack Obama was quietly racking up caucuses throughout the country, some by large margins. In North Dakota, he beat the New York senator by a 61 to 35 percent margin.

During a talk show on WMNF today, one listener asked what led to such disproportionate victories in these caucuses? So this afternoon, WMNF spoke with Kathi Osteen, the office manager of the North Dakota Democratic Party in Bismarck, North Dakota, about why Obama was so successful there.
