Democrat Barack Obama and rival Hillary Clinton battled to a draw on "Super Tuesday" and John McCain seized command of the Republican race in presidential nominating contests in 24 US states.
In their hard-fought duel for the Democratic nomination, Obama won 12 states and Clinton took eight. Clinton’s wins included the key prizes of California and New York on the biggest day of US presidential voting ahead of November’s election.
McCain won nine states, including key victories in California and big Northeastern states to take a daunting lead in the Republican race. Romney won six states and Huckabee won five. A total of 519 delegates are at stake for Obama and 656 for Clinton in Tuesday’s races. McCain nearly tripled Romney’s delegate count, with 475 to Romney’s 151 and Huckabee’s 105, CNN said. That was well short of the 1,191 needed to win the nomination./APA/ Translated by Nubar Piriyeva.
