Barack Obama's presidential campaign is claiming an early lead in pledged delegates for Super Tuesday.
In a media conference call at 10:30pm, Campaign Manager David Plouffe estimated that Obama leads Hillary Clinton in pledged delegates by 606 to 534. That lead could evaporate or grow, of course, depending on the results in remaining states.
Update [2008-2-5 23:16:1 by Jonathan Singer]: Clinton adds to her delegates by taking Arizona, according to NBC News.
