Obama Leads Clinton in both Delegates and Votes

Colleagues,

Following his landslide victory yesterday in South Carolina, Barack Obama now leads Hilary Clinton in total votes cast with 61% of the votes cast between them (405,576 to 259,471) from the four states which have already held primaries or caucuses:  Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.

Additionally, Obama leads in delegates from these fours states by a margin of 70 to 57, or 55% of delegates pledged to one of these two candidates.  (source: http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/)

If you are a Democratic or an Independent voter and have still not made up your mind about who to vote for, please watch Obama's victory speech from South Carolina (text is also included):

Also, please don't forget to vote YES on Proposition 92 to ensure stable funding and reduce student fees in the community colleges.

In Unity,

Jim
