A big win for Barack Obama as he sweeps the Potomac Primaries, but Clinton supporters say don't count her out.

"Even though we lost Virginia and the other ones, we're in it for the long run" said Clinton supporter David Slutzky.

Slutzky and other supporters met to watch the numbers come in and share a pizza.

Over at West Main, about 100 Barack Obama supporters cheered and celebrated their candidates sweep.

"We let out an incredible cheer cause they called it within seconds of the polls closing and it was just such a wonderful relief" said Amos Gilkey.

There are still hundreds of delegates up for grabs.

Clinton spent Tuesday night rallying support in Texas, Obama spoke to a crowd in Wisconsin.
