Obama wins Maine, Clinton campaign manager resigns

    Obama won the Maine primary today, cementing his sweep of this weekend’s Democratic contests.

    With this weekend’s wins, Obama closed the delegate gap created by Super Tuesday and now trails Clinton by less than 30 delegates. According to CNN, Clinton has 1,148 while Obama has 1,121. A total of 2,025 delegates is required in order to win the Democratic nomination.

    The Clinton campaign announced Sunday that Patti Solis Doyle would be stepping down as Clinton’s campaign manager. She is being replaced by Maggie Williams, who served as Hillary Clinton’s White House chief of staff during her husband’s administration in the 1990s.

    All eyes now turn to D.C., Virginia and Maryland, where 237 delegates will be distributed during Tuesday’s primaries.
