My Schedule has forced me to delay posting until April. Seeing as the political news is limited recently, besides the denial of the Michigan and Florida Re-votes Ill post again in April before PA, and give up to the minute details of the Democratic Battle.
Sorry for the delayed posting, but here is another 2008 update: U.S.
Democrats: Senator Hillary Clinton moves on from two more losses in Wyoming and Mississippi, after her wins in TX and OH. Clinton trails Sen. Barack Obama now by 131 delegates. The campaign now moves to Pennsylvania, the last delegate rich contest in this season. Clinton needs a win there to drive this race into the summer, and possibly into convention where her campaign feels she can win in. Early polls have Clinton leading Obama by double digits in PA, but as we have seen in past races Obama can surely comeback. The race afterwards will go into North Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, and Oregon and possibly do-over primaries and caucuses in Florida and Michigan.
Republicans: Whispers our now afoot that Mitt Romney is being considered as Presumptive Nominee John McCain's running mate as he has stated he is interested. McCain states he is a possibility but it is too early too tell. As we all know the two were bitter rivals in the primary race.
Spitzer: New York Governor Eliot Spitzer in the wake of his prositute sex scandal, is set to resign Monday, with Lt. Governor David Paterson, to succeed him as Governor. Spitzer was a prominent rising star in the party with a huge electoral victory in Nov. of 2006. Spitzer will step down after only holding the office of Governor for 1 1/2 years. Spitzer was known prior to the scandal as "Mr. Clean" for his years as Attorney General and busting corruption on Wall Street.
U.S. Senator John McCain has officially won the Republican Nomination for President of the United States recieving officially 1,195 delegates 4 more than the total needed to clinch the nomination. McCain entered the race, a frontrunner, fell to also-ran near dead status and with wins in NH, SC, and FL he was able to secure the nomination. Fmr. Governor Mike Huckabee has officially withdrawn his candidacy for president and endoresed John McCain. This comes after loses to McCain in Ohio, Texas, Vermont and Rhode Island. Following his victory for the nomination, President of the United States, George W. Bush is reported to tomorrow hand over the leadership of the Republican Party to this party's new nominee. Congrats to Sen. McCain. As you know this site has for a year now been supporting his candidacy and after a roller coaster ride is excited to continue to support him till November. On the Democratic Side, Sen. Barack Obama has won Vermont, and Sen. Hillary Clinton has won Rhode Island, but it is too close to call in Ohio and Texas with less than 15% reporting in btoh. Huge turnout in all 4 states. Hillary holds a double digit lead in Ohio, while Obama leads by single digits in Texas. Both could go either way according to polls, and we will have to wait till the morning probably. I'm leaving town for Washington D.C. so I won't have any posts for the results until I get back Sunday.
