Obama claims Virginia, McCain and Huckabee duke it out

With 35% of the vote in and counted in Virginia, Sen. Barack Obama is the clear winner (by a 2 to 1 margin!) of the state’s primary. On the Republican side, though, the vote is MUCH harder to sort, as the state-wide lead between McCain and Huckabee is less than 1,400 votes.

What’s fascinating is to look at the map and note the trends by geographic district. The close-in suburbs are certainly pro-Obama/McCain, while the western portion of the state are dramatically Huckabee/Clinton. Certainly that says interesting things about our region.

Update: McCain is predicted now to take Virginia, but the margin is far too narrow for McCain’s taste, I would expect.
