Results give Obama at least 13-delegate edge in Wisconsin

Preliminary numbers gathered by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin estimate that Barack Obama will receive 42 of the state's 74 delegates awarded based on yesterday's vote. Hillary Clinton will receive 32.

Those delegates were given out proportionately based on the results from the congressional districts as well as the statewide tally.

Wisconsin also has 16 superdelegates, five of those have already pledged their support to Obama. U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton, said last week he'd base his decision on who he'll support as a super delegate on the voters of the 8th CD and as "they go, so will I."

Obama won the 8th CD with about 56 percent of the vote.

Clinton has commitments from two of the state's super delegates. If Kagen backs Obama, it would give the Illinois senator a total of 48 delegates from Wisconsin, compared to 34 for Clinton.

Eight uncommitted super delegates remain, and there are two "add-on" delegates that will be selected at the Dem state convention in June. Those delegates also can support whoever they choose.

The DPW will report official delegate counts when the state Government Accountability Board finishes the official election canvass.

Here's the breakdown by Congressional District:

1st CD: 3 Obama, 3 Clinton
2nd CD: 5 Obama, 3 Clinton
3rd CD: 3 Obama, 3 Clinton
4th CD: 4 Obama, 2 Clinton
5th CD: 3 Obama, 2 Clinton
6th CD: 3 Obama, 2 Clinton
7th CD: 3 Obama, 3 Clinton
8th CD: 3 Obama, 3 Clinton


At large delegates: 9 Obama, 7 Clinton

PLEO delegates: 6 Obama, 4 Clinton
