NPR's National Political Correspondent Elizabeth Arnold reports on John McCain's two-state sweep in yesterday's Republican primaries. The Arizona senator was expected to take his home state in yesterday's race, but not Michigan. More than half of those voting in Michigan's open primary were non-Republicans, and that's where McCain drew his support. His rival, Texas Governor George W. Bush, is maintaining a stronger appeal among solid Republicans, and is banking on the next round of primaries to regain his footing.
