Far from South Carolina, President Obama won another easy victory in Nevada's Democratic caucuses.
Of course, there was no suspense in the result. Obama won 98.3% of the delegates after caucuses at 118 locations around the state, where four years ago Hillary Rodham Clinton notched a narrow victory.
Turnout fell short of expectations, with fewer than 13,000 Democrats participating despite the party's efforts to have a strong showing in what will likely be a general election swing state. More than 116,000 turned out for the 2008 caucuses.
But the party said volunteers have made more than a half a million calls to supporters, held 4,000 one-on-one meetings and opened three campaign offices in the state.
