Democratic presidential front-runner John Kerry has won two more primaries -- adding to his already comanding lead for his party's nomination to run against President Bush later this year.
The Massachusetts Senator won in the southern state of Virginia, taking 51 percent of the vote. He easily defeated North Carolina Senator John Edwards, who had 27 percent -- and retired General Wesley Clark with nine percent.
In neighboring Tennessee, partial results show Mr. Kerry winning with 40 percent with Senator Edwards and Mr. Clark tied at 24 percent.
Senator Kerry had already won 10 of the 12 state caucuses and primaries held before Tuesday.
Speaking, Tuesday at an election-night rally in Fairfax, Virginia, Mr. Kerry told cheering supporters that "Americans are voting for change" all over the country.
Political analysts say Mr. Kerry's victories in Virginia and Tennessee might prompt Senator Edwards or Mr. Clark -- both southerners, to drop out of the race.
All three are among the Democratic candidates vying for the right to challenge President Bush in the November general election.
