Indiana unlikely to pick nominee, still draws candidates

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is unlikely to have a king-making role in the 2016 presidential primaries like it did in 2008 when President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sought the Democratic nomination. But that doesn’t mean candidates are ignoring the state.

Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have held fundraisers here in recent months.

And the state’s stringent ballot qualification requirements have some campaigns sending volunteers and operatives across the state to gather the needed petition signatures.

Political experts say smart campaigns are the ones that plan ahead.
