Voters came out strong and it
turned out to be a strong night for
Barack Obama and John McCain---

LEADER 201 VA GOP LEADER 200 VA GOP

KEITH READS Keith reads


In Virginia Mike Huckabee was ahead at
one point and finished strong in our
own part of Virginia. but when the
numbers were tallied John McCain came
out the leader. ad lib numbers.

LEADER 201 VA DEMS LEADER 201 VA DEMS

JEAN READS Jean reads


On the Democratic Side in Virginia
Hillary Clinton hoped to fare better..
but she had only about half the votes..
Barack Obama the favorite among the


many democratic voters that came out
today.

KEITH 2-SHOT KEITH 2-SHOT


Something worth noting- the
Democrats award delegates
proportionately.


That means while Obama won Virginia,
Clinton picks up about one third of the
54 delegates in the process at stake
here.

JEAN 2-SHOT JEAN 2-SHOT


Obama and McCain also big winners
in Maryland

LEADER 300 MA GOP LEADER 300 MA GOP


For the repubican side- Senator
McCain more than 25 hundred votes
ahead of the former Arkansas governor
Mike Huckabee

LEADER 301 MA DEMS LEADER 301 MA DEMS


and on the democratic side- Barack
Obama with huge numbers over Hilary
clinton- with nearly all of the
precincts reporting in.

JEAN 2-SHOT JEAN 2-SHOT


one interesting note in Maryland
Keith is that polls stayed open until
9:30 because of bad weather.. those
voting between 8 and 9:30 voted on
provisional paper ballots- as required


by federal law and those votes will not
be tallied until next week

KEITH READS keith reads


Obama and McCain also came out the
winners in the District of Columbia.

LEADER 400 DC GOP LEADER 400 DC GOP


Two thirds of the vote among
Washington, D-C residents went to
McCain. The Arizona Senator 67
percent... former Governor Mike
Huckabees with 17-percent.

LEADER 401 DC DEMS LEADER 401 DC DEMS


A similar lopsided proportion in
D-C for Obama, though not quite such a
hammering win... The Illinois Senator
picks up 63-percent of the vote among
Washington residents, to Clinton's
36-percent.

February, 2007 The House of Delegates today
overwhelmingly passed a bill that
requires drivers convicted of driving
under the influence install ignition
interlock systems in their cars.


The requirement takes affect
after the first offense.


Offenders would have to blow into
the device every time they start their
car.


Ignition interlocks would have to
be installed on every vehicle the
offenders owns... even family vehicles
that others drive.

<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. With a wedge of colder air at
the surface, and warm air moving
overhead, light showers and drizzle
will stick around through the evening.
Temperatures north of the Roanoke
Valley will be close to freezing this
evening, so areas of sleet and even a
pocket of freezing rain is possible.
Amounts will be light, but use caution.
Overnight, a low pressure system will
move in from the south bringing
measurable rain in around 2AM, and will
stick around until around Noon
Wednesday. Rainfall amounts will be
around .50" or more, with some heavier
downpours possible toward sunrise. Warm
air will try to break the cold wedge
tonight with temperatures holding
steady or even rising a couple of
degrees.The cold front will push rain
out early in the afternoon, with slow
clearing late. Winds will increase a
bit as a front passes, but nothing like
what we saw over the weekend. Wednesday
night, winds may approach 30mph. Get

Cavaliers vs. Terriers Last week the Botetourt fans got :00 to celebrate clinching the Blue Ridge

And the Cavs would break on top
fast when Rick Alderman makes a tough
catch in traffic with his back to the
basket and flips in the reverse for the
visitors from Daleville.


On the other end - Jacob Mullen
will thread the pass to Bradley Mattox.
He will make the grab and convert the
layin for the Terriers.

distance skills when HUnter Foley
ripped rope on this toss from beyond

But the Cavs survive and win it

probation for the first six races of
the new NASCAR


season. This is in reaciton to their

The two drivers wrecked in

punched Busch, but no one will confirm

UVA comeback as the Cavs regained the
lead with 3:40 to play in the first
half.

UVA would not go away and with 51
