"Fight for Texas delegates won't end anytime soon"

The Houston Chronicle offers this report, which begins: "A record-shattering 1 million Texans may have participated in last week's Democratic precinct caucuses, a state party spokesman said Monday. But the focus now is on March 29, when supporters of presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama will fight it out again in about 260 county and state senatorial district conventions. Based on the 41 percent of precincts whose caucus results were called in to state party headquarters, Obama has a projected 37-30 edge in caucus delegates. But that could change by the time Texas' Democratic delegates are officially apportioned at the state party convention June 5-7 in Austin."
