Obama Brings Economic Message - and Bus Tour - to Indiana

From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

SOUTH BEND, IND. -- Barack Obama kicked off a three-day statewide bus tour at a rally here last night, where he focused on the slumping economy.

"Our economy is teetering on the edge of who knows what. We are already probably a recession." Obama told the crowd of over 3,000.

"We now know that after seven years of Bush's economic policy, pain trickles up"

Although Hillary Clinton leads in most state polls, she's only up by single-digits.

Obama's first stop today is in Gary, only 30 miles away from his hometown of Chicago. He has several retail stops scheduled in state before he ends the evening in Lafayette. Hillary Clinton will campaign in Indiana on Saturday.
