Senator Barack Obama is heading to the Pennsylvania primaries with another win under his belt.

After sweeping the deep south, Obama continued his run there with a win in Tuesday night's primary in Mississippi. With 99 precincts reporting, the total vote count was 251, 098 votes for Barack Obama and 154,310 votes for Hillary Clinton.

Democratic voters there said Obama was not only the more qualified candidate, but the candidate more likely to beat John McCain in the fall.

Tension between the Obama and Clinton camps may be registering with voters. More than half the democratic voters polled said whoever emerges as the official party nominee should choose the other as their running mate for the election in November.

Tuesday night Hillary Clinton had already moved on to the next battleground, Pennsylvania, where she's been for the past few days. A lot is at stake with the visit. Pennsylvania is offering up 188 delegate votes.
