Obama, Clinton Fight In Indiana Boon For Tourism Industry

Last updated on Tuesday, April 29, 2008

(UNDATED) - As the two Democratic presidential hopefuls bombard Indiana with visits, tourism officials are reaping the benefits of the exposure.

The State Tourism Bureau couldn't quantify how much money Indiana will make from the hotly-contested May 6th primary because there are so many different spots involved.

But, Bob Schultz with the Indianapolis Convention and Visitors Association says they know the media is reserving dozens of hotel rooms over the next few weeks.

Schultz says outlets like MSNBC have called to ask where to find lots of people to do interviews leading into the primary.

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be campaigning across Indiana over the next two weeks.
