Idaho Democrats turn out in record numbers to pick Obama

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Barack Obama has won the Democratic caucus in Idaho on a night when the party enjoyed record turnout in counties across the state.      

Idaho, with 18 delegates at stake, was a state Obama's campaign targeted last fall and then sought to lock down with his standing-room-only campaign rally last weekend in Boise.      

His Tuesday night victory comes as the party set new records for turnout, even turning away would-be voters at the Ada County caucus held at Qwest Arena in downtown Boise.      

Obama has beaten Hillary Clinton in 29 of the 30 counties that reported results by the time the race was called by The Associated Press.

KHQ was the only Station at the Northern Idaho Caucus in Coeur d'Alene tonight were 1256 voters turned out Tuesday night.  241 Caucused for Clinton and 1015 Caucused for Obama.
