(CNN) - It was tough crowds all around for the two presumptive presidential nominees Friday.

In the latest episode of CNN=Politics Daily, Suzanne Malveaux reports on how Sen. Barack Obama responded to being heckled over the attention he has paid to the needs of the African-American community. 

On the same day Obama was challenged by voters who felt he was not sensitive enough to African-American issues, Sen. John McCain spoke before the National Urban League, a powerful African-American civil rights organization.  Even though McCain's crowd would have appeared to favor Obama, the presumptive Republican nominee did not hesitate to suggest that the mostly African-American audience look beyond Obama's "rhetoric."

And, will the general election in November be a referendum on Obama rather than President Bush? Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider reports that the 2008 presidential election is appearing to come together as a test of the presumptive Democratic nominee rather than the current Republican administration.

Carol Costello has the story of a GOP fund-raising mailer that has confused some Republicans.

Finally, its Friday.  That means its time for Jennifer Mikell's Trail Mix - a look back at some of this week's most memorable moments from the campaign trail.
