Obama Picks Up Four More Delegates

ATLANTA (AP) -- Barack Obama is now just 52 delegates short of the number needed to capture the Democratic Party's nomination for president.

He picked up four more Saturday from a superdelgate and state party meetings in Wyoming, Alaska and Georgia.

It takes 2,026 delegates to win.

Hillary Clinton is 247 delegates shy. She's been pinning her hopes on superdelegates and votes from Florida and Michigan. Both states moved their primaries up to January in defiance of national party rules and the results were nullified. A Democratic committee is to decide next weekend what to do about their delegates.

There are now just three more Democratic primaries, with a total of 86 delegates at stake. Puerto Rico votes next Sunday. Montana and South Dakota wrap it up two days later.
