Decision 2008: McCain and Obama sweep Potomac Primaries
Yesterday, Senators McCain and Obama won the Republican and Democratic Primaries. Both won convincingly. McCain emerged victorious in DC and Maryland by wide margins . Huckabee surged to a close 2nd in VA, but all the states delegates went into Sen. McCain's column, for his win there. Obama surged into the lead among delegates, with huge victories in all 3 contests over Sen. Clinton. He now leads in states, popular votes, polls, and delegates officially winning the title for the first time, frontrunner. Will it hold? We'll find out in next Tuesdays Hawaii and Wisconsin Primaries. McCain and Obama are favored in both contests.
