ABC News’ Eloise Harper Reports: Senator Hillary Clinton speaking in Kinston, NC said that Tuesday’s primary will be a big day in the contest for the Democratic nomination. Clinton has denied in interviews and in press availabilities that she will drop out of the race if she loses Indiana.  Today, Clinton stressed the importance of the North Carolina contest.

“This primary election on Tuesday is a game changer. This is going to make a huge difference in what happens going forward. The entire country – probably even a lot of the world is looking to see what North Carolina decides.”

Speaking at a John Deere sales center, the New York Senator stressed the importance of creating jobs, criticizing those who say the current jobs numbers are a good indication.

"You know we lost 20,000 jobs last month and people are saying well that’s better than we thought.  Well, I don’t accept that at all. We’re not supposed to be losing jobs in America we’re supposed to be creating jobs in America. So losing 20,000 jobs isn’t exactly a welcome piece of information. We need to change our tax code which I will do. There’s not going to be one penny of your tax dollars that goes to any company that takes a job out of North Carolina and moves it to a foreign company.”

Clinton continued to praise the gax tax holiday and criticized her opponents for their positions.  The former First Lady has five stops in North Carolina today, continuing her marathon sprint around the Tar Heel state leading up to Tuesday.
