(INDIANAPOLIS) - A delay over paychecks caused several hundred campaign volunteers for Barack Obama to line up outside the Meridian Street office in downtown Indianapolis Wednesday.

The workers were hired do to last-minute canvassing before Tuesday's election, which saw Indiana go "blue" for the first time since 1964.

When the workers showed up in the morning, they were told that the office didn't have the money to pay them.

Police officers noticed the long line and came out to control the crowd by setting up barricades to make sure people didn't spill into the street.
