Today Texas and Ohio hold their primaries. Polls show Senator John McCain with 20 point leads in both TX and OH and is only 177 delegates short of the 1,191 needed to secure the nomination. Huckabee still pledges to continue to campaign.
The Democrats appear to still have no end in sight. Many are saying it is a must win for Senator Hillary Clinton who has lost the last eleven primaries. Latest polls show she does lead in OH and the TX race is virtually tied.
McCain continues to shift his focus to the general election and today will give a preview on how he will run his national campaign. He said he will not only focus on the “must win” states, Florida and Ohio, but opt to run a campaign in every state. He even wants to be a competitor in California, traditionally a blue state. The Arizona Senator cited his western roots, environmental commitment and his appeal to Independents as reason he could be a viable candidate in CA.
