Obama wins Miss

Last night Senator Barak Obama won the Mississippi primary but there is still no definite leader in the race for the Democratic nominee. The results last night were clearly in Obama’s favor, and as last reported were:

Obama 61%
Clinton 38%

The race now continues on to the Pennsylvania primary on April 22, where 188 delegates are up for grabs. Pennsylvania will be an interesting state and is still anyone’s to win. Clinton seems to fare well in larger states, but will the last two wins in WY and MI help give Obama a bump? Will Clinton continue the attack ads that seemed to help secure her March 4th victories in TX, OH and RI? It will be a long six weeks for the people of Pennsylvania.

As the Democrats continue to bash each other the Republicans are coalescing around nominee John McCain. Last week former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina was named Chair of the Victory Committee by the RNC. She will lead fundraising and get-out the vote efforts. After Easter McCain plans to launch his general campaigning starting with a biographical tour around the country In the mean time the Democrats will continue to be duking it out, unless a backroom deal is broker. Neither candidate seems willing to budge though.
