Republican Primaries

Host Bob Edwards talks to NPR's Elizabeth Arnold about what is at stake in today's Presidential primary elections in Virginia, Washington State, and North Dakota. The contest for the Republican Presidential nomination is becoming increasingly combative. John McCain criticized Christian conservatives Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell yesterday and referred to his opponent George W. Bush as 'a Robertson Republican.' Bush said that McCain is trying to divide the Republican Party by appealing to peoples' religious fears.
