Priest Says Catholics Looking at Obama & Clinton

A Catholic priest in Texas says that members of his parish are looking at both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Few parishioners have chosen McCain or Huckabee. Father Zuniga says his parishioners are not yet committed to either of the two Democrats and he is drawn between the two of them himself. However, he does say about Senator Obama "He is very sincere."

So far in the primaries, Clinton has won more Catholic votes than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican. Obama has come in second, ahead of any Republican but behind Clinton. However, in recent primaries, many Catholics have swung in his direction.
