Obama Leading In Wyoming

Barack Obama is holding a commanding lead in the Wyoming Caucus this afternoon. With 78% of the precincts reporting Obama holds a 59% lead over Hillary Clinton’s 40%. Only 12 delegates are at stake, but that could mean 7 additional delegates for Barack Obama bringing his lead to 1368 pledged delegates to Clinton’s 1225 which would include 5 from Wyoming.

The real battle will be over the Michigan and Florida delegates. There is now talk of do-over election or caucuses in both states. Howard Dean, chair of the National Democratic Party says the costs of those repeat elections will have to be covered by the state parties or other funding.
