New Mexico Finally Gets Around to Announcing Feb 5th “Winner”

Only nine days late to the party, New Mexico finally announced their Super Tuesday results.  Hillary Clinton won the state by a narrow margin of 1,700 votes.  No doubt this is a relief for the Clinton campaign after losing 8 straight contests to Obama.  This delayed win for Hillary helps her far more than if New Mexico had reported on Feb. 5th.  It gives her a victory in the middle of a very embarrassing series of losses.  Obama and Hillary will get roughly equal delegates from the state, but Hillary will get to tout a victory in the face of Obama’s momentum.
