Democratic candidates volly for youth vote

Columbus, OH – Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are aggressively competing for young voters in the Ohio presidential primary and elsewhere. The candidates are using text messages, facebook groups, and celebrities. Obama has consistently attracted young voters' interest and showed strength among voters under 45 in the Wisconsin primary. Clinton has won her strongest support from older voters. Clinton's daughter Chelsea rang conference calls coast-to-coast yesterday and Obama sent MTV personality Nick Cannon to campuses, including Columbus state community college. While most students appreciated the visit, others were not impressed. Mike Foley reports.
