Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) scooped up a 46-delegate advantage in her home turf of New York state based on Tuesday's voting, winning 139 delegates to 93 delegates for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), according to a preliminary estimate by the New York State Democratic Party.
Clinton won or held leads in 25 of 29 congressional districts, while Obama led in 4 districts -- the 6th, 10th and 11th in Brooklyn and Queens and the 28th in Rochester and Niagara Falls.
Tuesday's vote allocated 232 of 281 New York delegates. Clinton has secured endorsements from most of the remaining unpledged "super delegates," adding to her gains.
