Dems to Battle in Wyoming Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Wyoming will hold their caucuses as the race for the Democratic nomination continues. The number of superdelegates in Wyoming is 6 and the pledged delegate number is 12. Only 111 delegates separate Senator Hillary Clinton from the front-runner Senator Barack Obama. This makes all the remaining primaries and caucuses important, regardless of the number of delegates at stake in each state.

Wyoming is a state that is heavily registered Republican so some attention from Democratic candidates for President is welcomed and is sure to generate a much higher turnout than in past years. Here is a story in the New York Times about how Wyoming is getting ready for their vote:

Neither candidate is likely to gain more than 1 or 2 delegates from tomorrow and then it will be on to Mississippi on Tuesday where 33 pledged and 7 superdelegates are up for grabs. Obama is polling well there and is expected to win easily. However, Clinton was scheduled to be in the state today as she realizes every contest from here on is critical in securing the nomination.
