Authorities evacuated and searched three Barack Obama campaign offices in Indiana Tuesday in response to a bomb threat made while people voted in the state's primary.

The bomb threats were made in a call to a Terre Haute television station. Lewis Robinson of the Secret Service's Indianapolis office said the caller made threats against Obama offices in Terre Haute, Vincennes and Evansville.

Obama spokesman Kevin Griffis said workers left the offices and continued working by making cell phone calls.

The reports mirror the circumstances of Obama's office in Vincennes being vandalized early Monday morning. In that incident, a male caller also reported the vandalism to a station in Terre Haute.
