ELECTION ’08: I’m giving Obama Nebraska

TOPEKA, Kan. – Sen. Barack Obama was the winner of Saturday’s Democratic caucuses in Nebraska, NBC News reported.

The win came as Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton competed for Democratic convention delegates across three states on Saturday, locked in a marathon struggle for the party’s presidential nomination after nationwide contests this week failed to produce a clear front-runner.

From on the ground reports I’m hearing in WA (shout out to Jen, Sarah Rose, Jeremy, Samir and Yin), I think Obama has a lock on that one too.
