Sen. Hillary Clinton will win the most delegates in a tight Ohio battle for the Democratic presidential nomination, the state's governor said.

Governor Ted Strickland, a Clinton supporter, says she will win by a slim margin, according to Bloomberg Television.

It will be hard fought and perhaps a narrowly decided victory but I do think that she will win Ohio,'' Strickland, 66, said on Political Capital With Al Hunt'' that aired over the weekend.

The New York senator is in a tight battle with rival Illinois senator Barrack Obama. Clinton is barely ahead of Obama, having lost a significant lead in less than two weeks, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

On February 14, the university showed a 21 percentage point lead in the state. The latest poll shows her up leading by 11 points, 51 percent to 40 percent.
