nryan@wdbj7.com Hillary Clinton doesn't like the
idea of evenly splitting Michigan's
Democratic delegates with rival Barack
Obama.


CHANNEL=B VO-NAT


VO-NAT On Thursday, Obama's campaign


said a 50-50 split would be a fair way


to distribute delegates from the state,
which was penalized for holding a
primary earlier than allowed.


Obama spent Thursday campaigning
across West Virginia -- including a
stop in Beckley.


Clinton was criss-crossing
Indiana -- another key state for the
Democrats.


Whichever Democrat winds up with
the nomination -- it'll be a tough
battle against Republican John McCain
here in Virginia.

EXTENDED FORECAST


<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Brent Watts in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Spring Has Sprung! Spring
equinox officially began this morning,
however temperatures certainly didn't
reflect the change of seasons. We'll
get a little warmer Friday. High
pressure will move off the east coast
Friday, this will pull in some warmer


weather from the south, bringing highs
back into the low 60s with mostly sunny
skies. THIS WEEKEND: On Saturday, a
disturbance coming in from the
northwest will offer clouds than sun,
and a slight shower chance (20%). This
means most areas will remain dry, with
highs in the mid-60s. Cooler air will
build in Easter Sunday, with afternoon
highs in the low 50s. Sunrise is at
7:18am, and we should keep mainly sunny
skies with us through most of the day
for those egg hunts. Get the latest
weather forecast and radar imagery
