Clinton Wins Nevada Caucuses
By Chris Cillizza
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton beat Sen. Barack Obama in the Nevada Democratic caucuses today, while former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney prevailed earlier in the Nevada Republican caucuses.
NBC and Fox News Channel has called the race for Clinton. With 35 percent of the vote counted, Clinton led with 50 percent to 45 percent for Obama (Ill.) Former senator John Edwards trailed far behind with five percent.
"It's Hillary that's going to deal with the economic issues," said campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe in an interview on MSNBC moments after the network called the race for Clinton.
Early entrance polling showed Clinton leading among women, older voters and those who prized experience while Obama held an advantage among black voters and those who valued a need for chance, according to the Associated Press.
