WASHINGTON (AP) _ Barack Obama has won Virginia's Democratic
Primary, defeating Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Obama is also hoping to capture first place in Tuesday's
democratic primaries in Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Republicans are voting too, and it looks like Mike Huckabee is
making an unexpectedly strong challenge to John McCain in Virginia.

The Associated Press made its democratic call based on surveys
of voters as they left the polls.
