Washington state Democrats have numbers now from every county and every legislative district and Barack Obama has won them all but one.

I first reported that he’d won everything but a reader noticed that she won 53 of the delegates selected in Douglas County. Obama won 32 there.


Overall, the Illinois senator has 21,629 delegates (67.51 percent) elected to attend legislative district and county conventions in April. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has won 9,992 (31.2 percent) delegates.
