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, well 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 todays 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 campaigns widespread
attempts to prevent many Texans from participating in
their district convention, the voters of Texas
confirmed Senator Obamas important delegate win in
the Lone Star State, said Obama spokesman Josh
Earnest. Todays 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.
