Delegates For Clinton And McCain Despite Losses
(2008-02-06)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Despite losing in the Democratic presidential primary in Alabama, Hillary Roddam Clinton could get more delegates from the state than Barack Obama, based on an Associated Press tabulation today.

Obama won statewide with 56 percent of the vote to Clinton's 42 percent. The AP tabulation showed Clinton with 21 of those and Obama with 20 and four still to be determined.

On the Republican side, John McCain is getting a significant number of delegates after running a close second to Mike Huckabee in Tuesday's primary.

Huckabee pulled 41 percent of the statewide GOP vote to McCain's 37 percent and Mitt Romney's 18 percent. It showed Huckabee with 20 and McCain with 16 and nine to be determined. Romney had no delegates.

Democrats also are sending eight superdelegates to the party's national convention, and four of those have told AP they are for Clinton, one is for Obama and three are undecided. Republicans are sending three superdelegates, but their choice isn't known today.
