Hillary Clinton is the victor in New Mexico’s caucus, the state's Democratic party revealed today—nine days after the Super Tuesday vote was deemed too close to call. Clinton adds a single delegate to her overall count from the previous estimate, the AP reports. The final tally from the Land of Enchantment yields 14 delegates to Clinton, 12 to Barack Obama.
Amid apologies, the state had finished counting regular and absentee ballots Tuesday, one week after polls closed. The remaining ballots were provisionals; today's certification beat a state deadline by only one day. Said Gov. Bill Richardson, "I think a debate should take place among New Mexicans and Democrats on whether we should continue with a caucus or with a full primary."
