OBAMA: AL, AK, CO, CT, DE, GA, ID, IL, KS, MN, MO, ND, UT
Barack Obama surpassed all expectations tonight, winning 13 states on Super Tuesday, including big wins in the south and in rural America. Winning in states across the nation, Obama proved himself capable of carrying the Democratic Party in the general election in every region of the country.
While Hillary Clinton did manage some big wins in Massachusets, New Jersey, and of course, California, it is important to note that 71% of California Democrats would still be satisfied with Barack Obama as their nominee.
The delegate picture will remain cloudy until tomorrow. For now, the one clear result of Super Tuesday is that the race for the Democratic nomination will grow even more heated in the coming weeks.
Congratulations to the fervent Obama supporters who contributed to 13 historic wins tonight. For those of you on the west coast, enjoy the continuing coverage. I'm going to hit the sack and tune in early tomorrow.
