MO: AP Calls for Clinton

By Rob Stein
Sen. Hillary Clinton has won the heavily-contested, closely-watched state of Missouri, according to the Associated Press.

With election officials reporting a heavy turnout despite terrible weather, Clinton held onto a commanding lead.

Clinton had hoped to benefit from the state neighboring Arkansas, where she has deep roots.

Sen. Barack Obama had picked up endorsements from three members of the state's congressional delegation while Clinton had garnered one.

The Democrats allocate delegates proportionally. Forty-seven of the delegates will be awarded according to how well the candidates did in each of nine congressional districts, while 25 will be awarded based on the statewide vote. Sixteen will be unpledged.
