Democratic candidate Barack Obama emerged victorious in Saturday’s Wyoming caucuses, a win The Washington Post framed as “expected” but still one that Obama’s campaign manager called “very important” for the Illinois senator.
“The Fix” at The Washington Post:
David Plouffe, campaign manager for Obama, called Wyoming a “very important win” for the campaign, noting that the state played host to “very furious campaigning by the Clinton campaign.”
Plouffe noted that Obama has now won 30 contests and said the campaign will net two delegates out of Wyoming today.
With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Obama held a 59 percent to 40 percent edge over Clinton.
