Virginians Line up Behind Obama; Huckabee Leading McCain in Early Results

Breaking news from Virginia: It's early, but several media outlets are projecting that Sen. Barack Obama will beat Sen. Hillary Clinton in today's Democratic voting in the Old Dominion.

More surprisingly, the early Republican results show an early lead by Mike Huckabee, who continues to benefit from conservative doubts about Sen. John McCain.

McCain has a huge numerical advantage over Huckabee in the delegate count, but Huck shows continued strength among social conservatives, voters that McCain will need if he hopes to win the White House in November.

One week ago, Tulsa County Republicans split their vote between the two men, with Huckabee edging out McCain by a single percentage point.
