Sen. Barack Obama aimed to continue his streak of victories with decisive wins in the Potomac region’s trio of primary elections today as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton already was looking ahead to bigger contests to make up for lost ground.\ \ \ Obama volunteers working the crowd for him at a University of Maryland rally yesterday pushed supporters to sign up to canvass neighborhoods in both states, while D.C. Democrats were treated to automated phone calls from Mayor Adrian M. Fenty.\ \ \ “Imagine a president who will put principle ahead of polls … now imagine knowing that you made it possible. Vote for Barack Obama tomorrow,” Mr. Fenty says on the calls.\ \ \ Clinton volunteers worked the phones to get out the vote, and Republicans also vote today in the three contests.

You and I have taken a remarkable journey together through this entire campaign. Through all the ups and downs, you have been there when I needed you most. And today, I’m asking you for the most important thing of all — I’m asking for your vote.\ \ \ Today in Washington, D.C., voters will head out to the polls to make their choice for president. We both know that our country needs a leader who is ready to lead on day one. After seven years of a president who listens only to the special interests, America is ready for a president who brings your voice, your values, and your dreams to the White House.\ \ \ I’m relying on my strongest supporters like you to help me win the nomination, and there is nothing more important than getting out to vote. When you go to the polls in the District today, bring a friend, a neighbor, or a family member with you - in this highly competitive race for the nomination, every vote matters.\ \ \ Thank you for all you have done for me and our campaign.\ \ \ Hillary
