238 delegates in Maryland, Virginia and the District will be at stake. Because of high concentrations of African American and well-educated voters, many political strategists say Obama could have an early advantage in all 3 states, but Clinton strategists say the New York Democrat will campaign hard across the region. Clinton strategists are especially optimistic about their chances in Virginia, where her campaign dispatched several operatives experienced in state elections. In Virginia, Clinton's steering committee includes advocates from every region of the state, including former attorney general Mary Sue Terry and Dels. Adam P. Ebbin and Albert C. Eisenberg, who represent parts of Arlington County.
