Better Late Than Never: Clinton Wins New Mexico

It's about time--I hope no one demands a recount...

From the Boston Globe:

New Mexico Democratic Party officials announced this afternoon -- nine days
after their caucus -- that Hillary Clinton narrowly defeated Barack Obama.

Clinton received 73,105 votes to Obama's 71,396 votes, and her campaign
said she will get 14 of the 26 delegates because of proportional division.

More than 200 volunteers helped with the count, particularly of
provisional ballots, officials said. They said that the turnout nearly reached
150,000 and was the highest in decades for a nominating contest.

The result makes the final count from Super Tuesday 13 states for Obama
and nine for Clinton.

So that means that Clinton picked up two more delegates than Obama.
