Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington, and the Virgin Islands Decide Today!

Barack Obama tests his momentum in three states and the Virgin Islands today, with 158 delegates at stake in a race that is too close to call. Both candidates have been campaigning hard since Super Tuesday, while the three states and the Virgin Islands enjoy some unexpected attention. Most people figured the race would be decided by now. But most people didn't count on Barack Obama giving the Clinton machine a run for its money, no pun intended.

While the Clintons had to tap into $5 million of their personal assets to fund their efforts, the Obama campaign raised more than $6 million from small donors in the first 24 hours following Super Tuesday. With the Republican nomination firmly in the hands of John McCain, voters will decide today who is ready to challenge Republicans for the White House.
