Barack Obama won the Wyoming caucuses Saturday, beating Hillary Clinton by double digits after a day of historic turnout in the state.
With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Obama had 59 percent to Clintons 40 percent. Both candidates campaigned in the state ahead of the caucuses, but the onus was on Obama to regain his momentum after Clinton disrupted his winning streak Tuesday, scoring wins in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island.
Her victories kept her campaign alive, pushing the race forward to Wyoming, where just 12 convention delegates in 23 county caucuses were at stake. Next up is Mississippi, which holds its primary Tuesday, and then Pennsylvania, which votes April 22.
With the almost unprecedented political attention, turnout was high as thousands of Wyoming voters deluged caucus sites.
Obama got a big bump from Albany County, which contains the University Wyoming. The state Democratic Party reported 75 percent of caucus-goers there went for Obama.
Please correct sp. of Wyoming.
Obama wins Wyomin Caucuses by double digits
Please correct sp. of Wyoming.
Looks good to me.. ;-)
We’ll probably never see so many live shots from Cheyenne in one day ever again.
Looks like Wymin,they like him too.
the pattern continues. for the most part obama wins states that hold caucuses and hellary wins primaries in larger states with big hispanic populations.
Yeh, who cares? Wyoming has a few thousand Dems total.
Good, we don’t want Hillary pulling ahead.
Very nice. Barack McGovern here we come!
Sure this is the RIGHT spelling remember the song...”you know wyomin’ will be your new home...come along little dogies”bwahahahahaha!
I heard they hang liberals in Wyoming —— like horse theives....
I’ve often heard it called Wyomey. Visiting there is on my top ten list of things to do before I kick the bucket.
Ash tray alert.....incoming at hypersonic speed....
WY is moving to the left like its northern neighbor, where Ted Turner has bought up so much property. Maybe Obamamania has now come to WY too. Probably up in Jackson County in particular
Texas is the best example of that, since the Dems have both a primary and a caucus, with the delegates evenly divided between them. Primaries: Clinton 51%, Obama 47%. Caucuses: Obama 56% Clinton 44% (last I checked... returns were still incoming).
Clinton netted only a handful of delegates from the primaries, and is going to lose a good deal more than that from the caucuses... in other words, primary results aside, Clinton lost Texas.
I guess all that lower cankle allows for a good spring loaded wind up ...
Note to shrillary...enter the discus throw in China Olympiade...
That depends on what the definition of “is” is.
