BOISE, Idaho - Barack Obama was reportedly closing in on a win in the Idaho Democratic presidential caucus on Super Tuesday.
The Idaho Statesman said the party reported very wide margins for the Illinois senator over rival Hillary Clinton in both congressional districts.
Obama received more than 80 percent of the vote, the Statesman said.
The newspaper reported that turnout was heavy at the caucus sites. Officials running the Ada County caucus at a packed Qwest Arena in Boise, in fact, quickly used up their 9,000 ballots and had to hurriedly print up another to accommodate the crowd.
