AK: Obama Claims Early Lead
By Christopher Lee
Barack Obama claimed an early lead in Alaska, pulling in 68 percent of the vote to Hillary Clinton's 32 percent with 20 percent of precincts reporting.
Party leaders anticipated a record turnout tonight as Alaska Democrats headed to the party's presidential caucuses for the first time on Super Tuesday, rather than the usual March date. Thirteen of the state's 18 delegates were at stake, with candidates needing at least 15 percent of the vote to collect any. But the final allocation of delegates will not be determined until the state party convention in May.
