PRECINCTS REPORTING: 809 OF 1781
(PERCENTAGES ARE STATE DELEGATE EQUIVALENTS.)

7:50: Obama passes Hillary, for the first time.

7:52: More than 25% in, and Obama and Hillary are tied.

7:54: 0.37% separates the big three.

7:56: Obama leads, for the first time. 0.68% separates the big three.

8:00 Without knowing from where the returns are coming, the trend has clearly been a build for Obama, as the night progresses. Hillary is now almost a point and a half behind.

8:03: CNN has declared Huckabee the Republican winner.

8:05: Hillary's closing on Edwards. Obama's opening up his lead. Even so, it's an extremely tight race.
