Super Tuesday in New Mexico was (is) a mess

Reports of long lines, crowded rooms and chaos caused many voters to give up and go home. Last night when it was time to tally the votes the State Dem chairman could not reach some of the county chairs. The race is tight and still has 17,000 provisional ballots yet to be counted.

Here's where the numbers stand right now with 98% reporting and 180 of 184 Precincts counted.

Feb 6, 2008 8:50 PM ET

Hillary Clinton 66,173-votes 13-Delegates
Barack Obama 65,963-votes 12-Delegates

As reported at the Albuquerque Journal

2/6 6pm PT, Nationally-

MSNBC is now reporting that Hillary is up 4 delegates over Obama instead of the down 4 delegates they've been reporting all day. But, their figures are much dif than any others you can find nationally so right now it just doesn't matter much. Hillary is up approx 70 to 100 delegates on Obama including Super Delegates and that's all you need to remember!.
As for the actual votes that were done on Super Tuesday, again according to msnbc, Hillary got 50,000 more votes than Obama.


Updated numbers for New Mexico: with 99% reporting Hillary has expanded her lead to 68,654 over Obama's 67,531. None of this should affect the delegates allotted.
Ok, another Update, they are doing a recount!
