GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Barack Obama has squeezed in a last bit of campaigning along with a breakfast of scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, wheat toast and grits at a restaurant in Greenville, Mississippi.

Obama is expected to easily win today's primary in Mississippi over rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

He noted to fellow diners at Buck's restaurant that the state's delta region continues to struggle economically. In Obama's words, "We just haven't seen as much opportunity come to this area as we'd like."

Obama added that one of the challenges for the next president would be "making sure that we are serving all communities and not just some communities."
