Three Presidential Candidates Hit Campaign Trail

May 28, 2008

Barack Obama talked tough Wednesday about the need to improve education.

"We have to fix "No Child Left Behind." We have to provide the funding we were promised, give our states the resources they need and finally meet our committment to special education," said Obama.

Obama campaigned in Colorado Wednesday,first touring a school for the arts in Thornton and then taking questions at a town hall. He picked up several more superdelegates throughout the day to bring him closer to securing the Democratic presidential nomination.

John Mccain took some jabs at Obama at a town hall, criticizing him for only visiting Iraq one time.

"We have got to show him the facts on the ground," said McCain.

McCain also plans to attend private fundraisers here in Los Angeles and in Reno. While President Bush helps the GOP candidate raise money at two events in Utah.

The president and the Arizona Senator appeared together Tuesday night for a seconds long photo op at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport following a private fundraiser. The event was closed to all media, a fact Obama quickly criticized even though he, too, has held private fundraisers in the past.

Hillary Clinton pressed on with her campaign at a picturesque location-- Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

The New York Senator is awaiting the results of Saturday's meeting of the Democratic party's Rules and Bylaws Committee in Washington.

Members will discuss how to divide delegates from Michigan and Florida. But even a decision in her favor will likely not bring the Democratic nomination within reach.
