Dems' Primaries End Today

This article is more than 11 years old.

This is it — the last day of the Democratic primary race. The final votes take place today in South Dakota and Montana.

Both candidates spent their last day in different states stumping for support. Hillary Clinton was in South Dakota, "We started out way behind in South Dakota. My opponent has a tremendous base of support here but we put together an amazing grassroots volunteer-driven campaign."

Barack Obama chose to speak outside the two states that are in contention today. He appeared in Michigan yesterday, "Let me tell you something. First of all, Senator Clinton has run an outstanding race. She is an outstanding public servant, and she and I will be working together in November."

The outcome of today's primary races could decide who will represent Democrats in November's general election.

WBUR's Bob Oakes turns to our political analysts — Republican Todd Domke and Democrat Dan Payne — to talk about what today's contests could mean for the party and the presidential race.

This program aired on June 3, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
