Ellsworth said in a statement that "if it comes down to the convention, I will cast my vote for the candidate 8th District voters chose unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise."
Ellsworth said, "A compelling reason in my mind is if something significant should arise that Hoosier voters were not aware of when they cast their ballots."
Can I say the word, "weasel"? Clinton also carried U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly's 2nd District, but he hasn't made up his mind as is the case with U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky in the Indiana's 1st District. According to the Groppe's story in the Star, Obama carried the first district. I would like to see those actual numbers. Yes, Obama carried Lake County with about 56% of the vote, but Clinton carried the balance of the district, including Porter, Jasper, Newton and Benton Counties.
