Sen. Barack Obama's victory in the South Carolina presidential primary may give him vital momentum as the Democratic candidate and his rivals head into Super Tuesday on Feb. 5, when more than 1,600 convention delegates will be up for grabs.

Host Andrea Seabrook talks with NPR's Washington Editor Ron Elving about the South Carolina race, as well as the Florida primary, slated for Tuesday.

Only the Republican candidates are actively campaigning in the Florida contest — a result of the state moving its primary date up against the Democratic Party's wishes.
