Up for grabs in Tennessee is 68 delegates for the Democrats and 52 for the Republicans.

The University of Tennessee's Web site said Huckabee officially won the Tennessee Republican primary, narrowly defeating John McCain.

Huckabee won 34 percent of the vote to McCain's finished 32 percent. Mitt Romney was third with 24 percent of the vote; Ron Paul fourth with 6 percent.
