Super Tuesday is off to a dramatic start, as if primary voting in twenty-four states were not dramatic enough. Drudge is reporting that Los Angeles residents are unable to vote because of missing equipment. This could have a huge effect because California is the most important state in the union for delegates. (Let the conspiracy theories commence!)
On the Republican side, Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are wrestling for victory but many polls give McCain the edge. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is looking more like a VP contender. UPDATE: Huckabee wins West Virginia. Figures.
On the Democratic side, Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton, who suffered a coughing fit during a discussion on health care, are neck-and-neck. Seventy-five percent of overseas absentee votes are for Obama.
