Obama wins upset in Conn.
by UPI

HARTFORD, Conn. - Sen. Barack Obama won an upset victory in Connecticut's Democratic presidential primary on Super Tuesday.

The junior senator from Illinois won 48 of the state's delegates after being in a tight race with New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, who had ties to the Nutmeg State, The Hartford Courant reported Tuesday.

She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton both attended Yale University law school.

With 95 percent of the vote counted, Obama led Clinton 51 percent to 47 percent, CNN reported.

As recently as last month, Obama was trailing Clinton by 14 points in the state, according to polls.

On the Republican side, Arizona Sen. John McCain defeated former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 52 percent 33 percent, with 95 percent of precincts reporting.

Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz said she expected voter turnout to be around 50 percent.

"I think that the decision to move the primary from the beginning of March to the beginning of February was critical. Connecticut is in the thick of it," she was quoted by The Courant as saying.
