Obama and McCain take Illinois

Barack Obama and John McCain are projected to win the Illinois Democratic primary in VERY early results, according to CNN.

AP exit polls indicated that Obama secured 88% of the Black vote, which is about the only statistic available on the contest at this point.

Interesting: For Romney, winning Massachussets, it was a "home state advantage" according to CNN. With Obama, the Black vote wins. Wait, he represents Illinois, right? Isn't that a home state advantage? Yup, interesting coverage.
