Primaries This Weekend

There are a number of contests this weekend for both Republicans and Democrats. There are more caucuses than primaries, which is good for Obama – he has done very well in caucuses. If Mitt Romney was still in the Republican race he would do well too – he had consistent and strong support in caucuses. As it stands, McCain will win all of the contests tonight.
