PolitickerME is reporting that Barack Obama has won the Maine Caucus. This tops off a fantastic weekend for him, after winning contests in Nebraska, Washington, Louisiana and the Virgin Islands.

Prior to tonight's caucus, Obama has been down in all the polls I was able to see. Clinton was also talked about having a good chance at winning in Maine, because the state's large white, heavily working-class population favored her. John Baldacci, the governor of Maine, also endorsed and supported her.

This gives him a great deal of momentum moving into the contests in the Potomac on Tuesday, which include Maryland, Virgina and Washington, D.C.
