SACRAMENTO - The vote count was reported tight in California shortly after the polls closed in the highly important Super Tuesday presidential primary.
The Los Angeles Times said the race was too close to call even though the early results showed Hillary Clinton and John McCain breaking to the front of the pack.
McCain spent Tuesday campaigning in San Diego.
Voting in the Republican primary was limited to registered party members while independents were allowed to cast ballots in the Democratic contest.
California comes with a huge cache of delegates. The Republican prize is 173 delegates. The Democrats have 441 delegates up for grabs. The delegates will be allotted based on which candidate wins in the state's individual congressional districts.
