WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Barack Obama has won the overall delegate race in Texas thanks to a strong showing in Democratic county conventions this past weekend.
Obama picked up seven of nine outstanding delegates, giving him a total of 99 Texas delegates to the party’s national convention this summer. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton won the other two, giving her a total of 94 Texas delegates, according to an analysis of returns by The Associated Press.
Burnt Orange Report has it closer by 2 delegates. Obama up 3. The bottom line to the whole thing is that Barack Obama is the winner of Texas and not Hillary Clinton. This means she won precisely 1 “big state” and one “little state” on March 4th. Precisely the same as Obama – though she is farther behind in total delegates. The results in Ohio meant about as much as they normally do in a Democratic primary for President. Squadoosh.
NOW will Team Billary STOP using Texas as one of the states she supposedly “won” in her fundraising emails? Probably not. The only thing sure to happen is continued delegate poaching and arm twisting.
