Live-blogging for the Texas caucus begins better late than never. So who won the Texas caucus? Does Hillary Clinton have any chance at all, or is Barack Obama going to use his superior organization, money, and enthusiasm to put butts in the seats.
The Texas caucus is like a wart on a beautiful virgin. She gets all the attention, but the caucus is what is now bugging everyone. Why Texas would organize themselves this way is beyond reason. Republicans who voted in the Democrat primary are eligible in the Democrat caucus. People who spent the time voting now have to caucus. Two votes in one day. Crazy, man.
Lawsuits from Hillary Clinton are threatened because of irregularities in the voting.
Please discuss and we will post the updates as usual.
Meanwhile read the Obama primer on the Texas caucus.
Note that we already called Hillary Clinton the winner of the primary. You can visit that thread from the homepage at rightpundits.com
Results are below.
Texas Caucus results and winners:
Update 12.25am – Obama up with 55% with 5% counted in the caucuses.
Update 12.38am – listen to firsthand account from the train-wreck in Texas. (note: far left blog but the blogger there is awfully cute.)
Update 1.35am – results are rolling in slowly. Obama has an 8 point lead with about 15% counted. Interesting because Obama was expected to have a wider margin. It isn’t happening. Right Pundits predicts now that Obama wins the Texas caucus, which is not a surprise or earth shattering. But he was expected to win bigger.
10am (March 5th) – Precinct by precinct results are here.
