AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - More delegates are being doled out in the
Democratic presidential race this weekend from voting that took
place nearly a month ago.
Texas Democrats are finally tallying up the results from the
state's March 4th caucuses. When counting was suspended last night,
Obama was leading Clinton 59 percent to 41 percent.
Clinton won 65 of the delegates at stake Texas primary, also
held March 4th. Obama won 61. Another 42 are being decided from the
caucuses, and 25 more will be parceled out at the state Democratic
convention in June. So even though Clinton won the primary, Obama
could wind up with more Texas delegates.
The caucuses were chaotic in many parts of the state because of
the unprecedented turnout. That confusion spilled over into
yesterday's 280 Texas county conventions. Arguments set in as
Clinton backers challenged Obama delegates.
