With the pick up of Nevada's Yvonne Gates this morning, Obama needs 61.5 delegates to reach the magic number of 2,118.
Yesterday, Clinton picked up Louisiana DNC Member Claude "Buddy" Leach.
* Also note, Maryland's Al Wynn's resignation takes effect this weekend. That means technically the number drops to 2,117 for at least a couple of weeks until Donna Edwards likely fills his seat. We contacted the DNC to see if it would reduce their number. They are not, so we will keep the number at 2,118, which is what it will eventually be at convention. Donna Edwards is expected to be an Obama supporter, but until that is official, we are leaving her off Obama's list, as have others.
The NBC NEWS Delegate Counts:
PLEDGED: Obama 1,712 to 1,587
SUPERDELEGATES: Obama 328 to 293
EDWARDS PL. DELEGATES: Obama 16.5 to 0 (adding the 4.5 from Florida)
OVERALL: Obama 2,056.5 to 1,880
