Obama, McCain win D.C. primary
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain both handily won their parties' respective primaries in the District of Columbia Tuesday, it was reported.

With 89 percent of the vote counted, Obama led Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, 76 percent to 24 percent, CNN reported.

Obama's win in the District of Columbia gave him a trifecta in the so-called Potomac Primaries, with projected victories in Virginia and Maryland, as well.

"Though we won in Washington, D.C., this movement won't stop until there is change in Washington," Obama was quoted by The Washington Post as saying Tuesday night.

On the Republican side, McCain had 67 percent of the vote, compared to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's 17 percent, with 89 percent of precincts reporting. Texas Rep. Ron Paul trailed with 8 percent of the vote, according to CNN.

There are 15 Democratic delegates and 16 GOP delegates up for grabs in the District's primary.

McCain emerged as the Republican presidential front-runner last week after winning most of last week's Super Tuesday nominating contests. Over the weekend, the Arizona senator lost Louisiana and Kansas to Huckabee.
