Obama Defeats Clinton in Virginia Primary
By Chris Cillizza
Sen. Barack Obama scored a convincing victory over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in Virginia's Democratic presidential primary, an early indicator of a strong showing for the Illinois senator in today's Potomac Primary.
Polls closed in the commonwealth at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
Virginia was the state in which Clinton, reeling from a staff shakeup and a series of defeats in primaries and caucuses last weekend, had hoped to perform beyond modest expectations.
Obama's win in Virginia bodes well for his chances in Maryland and the District of Columbia, both of which had primaries today.
