It's a boost of Presidential proportion for Republican front-runner John
He picked up the endorsement of former President Bush. McCain is way ahead in the delegate count but his challenger, Mike Huckabee, wont' back out.
For McCain, his biggest challenge lies within his own party. He is trying to convince GOP voters that he's a true conservative while squashing
suggestions from Democrats that a McCain White House would amount to a third term of Bush administration policies.
Both of the leading Democrats in the race for the White House are stumping in the heartland. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are both putting their focus back on the economy.
Obama is leading the delegate count, so Clinton is criss-crossing Wisconsin. Voters there and in Hawaii head to the polls Tuesday. She's also focused on next Tuesday, when Texas and Ohio hold primary contests.
The former first lady is hoping for big wins in the delegate rich states but her campaign leaders insist, a loss in any would 'not' end her run for the White House.
