(Newser) – Missouri voters in both parties are split on who should be their nominee. As of Wednesday morning, the results from Tuesday's voting remained too close to call with recounts possible for both, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Hillary Clinton led Bernie Sanders by about 1,500 votes, and Donald Trump was leading Ted Cruz by about 1,700 votes. All precincts have reported, but absentee and overseas ballots are still being counted, reports CNN. The latter can come in through Friday afternoon. As of now, the margins of victory were within half a percentage point, meaning both Cruz and Sanders could request recounts under state law. (Read more Missouri stories.)
