      Obama Camp: Victory in Texas
      March 29th, 2008 at 10:57 pm

      This in from the Obama Campaign. It might be a bit
      premature. When we get something from the Clinton
      Campaign, we’ll post that as well.

      Meanwhile, once again the national media is shaking
      its head at the bedlam produced by Texas Democrats…

      Caucuses Guarantee Obama Win In Texas

      AUSTIN - With more than 56% of the results tallied
      from today’s 284 Democratic district conventions
      across Texas, Senator Barack Obama currently is
      projected to earn a 38-29 pledged delegate win in the
      Texas caucuses, exactly as projected on the day after
      the March 4th precinct caucuses. The nine delegate
      margin in the caucuses means Obama will gain a net
      margin of five pledged delegates from Texas because
      Senator Clinton narrowly won the Texas primary by only
      four delegates, 65-61.

      “Despite the Clinton campaign’s widespread
      attempts to prevent many Texans from participating in
      their district convention, the voters of Texas
      confirmed Senator Obama’s important delegate win in
      the Lone Star State,” said Obama spokesman Josh
      Earnest. “Today’s record-shattering turnout sends a
      clear message that the American people are ready for
      change in Washington and new leadership in the White
      House that will stand up for working families.”

      The Obama campaign will release a more detailed
      tally of the results tomorrow.
