Barack Obama and John McCain have won the presidential primaries in the District of Columbia, adding to wins in Virginia and Maryland.
Obama reached out to often ignored D.C. voters, making a surprise appearance in Eastern Market on Tuesday. The majority-black city selected the man who could become the first black president.
"Tonight we're on our way," Obama told cheering supporters in
Madison, Wisconsin "But we know how much further we have to go on," said Obama.
Obama and Clinton have been in a tight race for national convention delegates.
Meanwhile John McCain padded his growing insurmountable lead sweeping the Potomac Primary.
