MN: Obama Sprints to Early Lead

By Christopher Lee
Sen. Barack Obama jumped out to a more than two-to-one lead over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton with 11 percent of the vote counted in Minnesota, which saw historic turnout at the party's caucuses.

Obama had blitzed Minneapolis-area airwaves with ads highlighting his early opposition to the Iraq war, while the Clinton campaign spent its TV money in other states. Both candidates visited Minnesota over the weekend in pursuit of the state's 88 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, 72 of which will be awarded in proportion to the share of the vote that candidates collect tonight.
