McCain, Clinton, Obama took weekend off

Associated Press

After months of grueling effort, all three major party candidates still in the running for president took the weekend off from their campaign trail.

Saturday, Obama grabbed back some momentum with an expected win in the Wyoming caucuses. He picked up seven delegate votes. Clinton gets the other five. An Associated Press tally shows Obama ahead in the overall delegate count by 110. That's out of more than 3,000 decided.

Next up is Tuesday's Democratic primary in Mississippi, where Obama is widely expected to win.

Meanwhile, the national Democratic party is attacking McCain on his support for the Iraq war. An Iraq veteran delivered the Democrats weekly radio chat yesterday and said McCain would continue the war and couldn't "reinvigorate" the economy.

McCain's camp says, "We vigorously dispute the Democrats' assertions."
