Albany -- From Washington state to Maine, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were back on the campaign trail with 3 states up for grabs in this weekend's Democratic presidential nomination contests.

Hillary Clinton, who spent Saturday campaigning in Maine, leads Obama in pledged delegates by 14 votes. But the Obama campaign is confident that the success it gained on Super Tuesday will carry over into Saturday's contests.

We spoke with Congressmen Sanford Bishop, who is the Georgia co-chairman for Barack Obama, about the voter's response on Super Tuesday.

"He has the capacity and it's demonstrated that he can bring people together. Republicans, Democrats, Independents are caught up in this movement for change and they're embracing him. We're excited about it for our state, for our country and indeed, for the world," - Rep. Sanford Bishop, D- Albany.

Obama has won seven of the eight caucuses so far this year. Saturday's Democratic contests are in Washington state and Louisiana. Caucuses will be held Maine on Sunday and Virginia on Tuesday.
