US election at-a-glance: 13 Feb
DAY IN A NUTSHELL

Hillary Clinton campaigns in Texas, while Barack Obama focuses on Wisconsin, where he makes a speech outlining his economic policies. John McCain receives another endorsement from the Republican establishment, this time from the party's leadership team in the US House of Representatives.

KEY QUOTES

"Obama has systematically won states that play to his particular strengths since the Iowa caucus. So has Clinton. Her problem has been that she has not had any good states in the last week."
Jay Costa, RealClearPolitics.com

We need real results, not more rhetoric
Hillary Clinton

"I have not observed every speech he has given obviously, but they are singularly lacking in specifics."
John McCain on Barack Obama

"We are not standing on the brink of recession due to forces beyond our control. The fallout from the housing crisis that's cost jobs and wiped out savings was not an inevitable part of the business cycle. It was a failure of leadership and imagination in Washington."
Barack Obama

"I am in the solutions business, my opponent is in the promises business... We need real results, not more rhetoric."
Hillary Clinton
