The very early count of today's primary has been posted at the Secretary of State's office. On the Republican side, the only side that will determine delegates, John McCain has a comfortable lead over Mike Huckabee. On the Democratic side, the popularity contest shows Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in a very close race.
McCain has more than 50 percent of the GOP vote compared to Huckabee's 23 percent.
Obama holds a slight lead with 50 percent of the Democratic vote with Clinton getting 47 percent.
The numbers are moving very quickly. Usually there is some time in between when results are posted. But these are moving like the stock market.
If the race is close on either side we may not be able to say who the winner is. You can see here that many counties are doing only one count tonight.
