Feb 12: Chesapeake/DMV/Beltway Primaries

Tuesday Maryland, DC and Virginia all have our primaries.


I can't speak for MD or DC but in Virginia you don't register with any party, so it's an open primary.

My prediction is that Virginia and DC will go Obama, Maryland seems to be breaking that way as well.

I tend to agree, though it appears that PA will go strongly for her. But if Obama wins all the contests leading up to that it probably won't be enough.

He's speaking today in Alexandria with Moran - I assume tickets are gone. Maybe tomorrow in College Park .

I've been canvassing for Obama and will try to make calls later today and tomorrow and Tuesday. SO excited about how well he's doing.

On a random VA politicians note, guess who was attending my parish this morning with his family? Jim Webb! I'll have to bring my resume next weekend.

My polling place is at the local fire station and right on my way to work. I'm gonna get up a little early tomorrow morning so I can vote on the way in. I can't see it being too crowded out here but we'll see. This area is generally a Republican stronghold but in our last local election for State Senate, it was almost a tie. Will be interesting to see how things shape up this year.

i know you said Clinton is a friend of Nova...but I honestly haven't seen jack for her. However I've seen Obama signs everywhere, hence me breaking out into some Tribe on various occasions throughout the day.

Well I did my civic duty. There was a smidge of snow last night and more bad weather forecast, so that may affect turnout around here. However, there were a few people at the precinct and more arriving as I left. Can I just say that the weird little electronic voting tablets where you touch the screen kind of freak me out? I like the solidity of paper.

Let's see what happens in VA today.

potomac primary is well under way. it was a zoo this morning. i saw kucinich on the ballot. after all the hard work i did to get him on the ballot here, i was so tempted to vote for him. but i thought the better of it. it's a damn shame i have an exam tonight, so i'm going to miss the excitement of the results pouring in. i expect text updates!

Agreed.

And at this point, unless something happens to change people's minds, I don't think she will be successful.
