It turns out Barack Obama did win every county in Washington state’s Democratic caucuses on Saturday.
The state Democratic Party had initially reported that Hillary Rodham Clinton won just a single county, Douglas County, in Eastern Washington by a 53-32 count of delegates.
But now party leaders say someone misreported the results. The correct tally in Douglas County, according to state party Executive Director Jaxon Ravens, is 65 delegates for Obama and 37 for Clinton, completing the Obama’s sweep of all 39 Washington counties.
“We had a lot of results coming in Saturday night and the person who took down the (Douglas County) results just transposed the numbers. We apologize that the information was misreported on the night of the caucus but we’ve corrected the error and it’s not going to affect the allocation of delegates,” Ravens said.
