Obama (Almost) Sweeps Northern Virginia
So how bad did Sen. Barack Obama thrash Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in Northern Virginia on Tuesday?
According to the state Board of Elections, Clinton (D-N.Y.) didn't win a single precinct in Alexandria. She won one in Arlington (Arlington Mill) and one in Loudoun (Guilford). She won three in Prince William (Stonewall, Park and Potomac View). She also won seven in Fairfax County (Ravensworth, Holmes, Edsall, Parklawn, Lynbrook, Greenspring and Virginia Hills).
But Obama (D-Ill.) swept every other precinct in the core of Northern Virginia, often by a 2 to 1 margin. There are 27 precincts in Alexandria, 51 in Arlington, 73 in Prince William, 63 in Loudoun and 232 in Fairfax County.
Earlier today, the Virginia Democratic Party estimated Obama will be awarded 54 Virginia pledged delegates. Clinton will get 29.
