Pennsylvania is the next battleground for the Democrats. It holds its primary April 22 and has 158 delegates at stake.

Obama also finished first in the Texas Democratic caucuses. The caucuses were held last week, but the race was not called until Tuesday night.

Obama will get more delegates out of the state than Clinton, who won the state's primary.

Under the Texas Democratic Party's complex delegate selection plan, Texas voters participated in both a primary and caucuses last week.

Two-thirds of the state's 193 delegates were at stake at the primary, while the remaining third were decided by the caucuses.

Hillary won the Texas Primary; but Obama will win the Texas Caucuses, and, Obama will win the overall victory in the total Texas Delegates

Texas awards a total of 193 delegates: 126 delegates based on the Primary, and 67 based on the Caucuses.

Hillary won the Texas Primary on March 4th - there were 126 delegates at stake; Hillary won 65 delegates, and Obama won 61 delegates.

Obama will win the Texas caucus results (official Democratic party results expected March 29), and there are 67 delegates from the caucuses at stake.

The overall result will be that Obama will win the state of Texas in overall delegates.

What if the national media headlines on the morning after the four March 4th Democratic contests,...

instead of: "Hillary wins Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island; Obama wins Vermont,"

had been: "Obama wins Texas and Vermont; Hillary wins Ohio and Rhode Island"...

...would the Democratic presidential race still have continued on now to Pennsylvania, April 22, or,

would there be more pressure from within the Democratic Party for Hillary to end her campaign ???
