California’s final pledged delegate count…

…based on the Feb. 5 presidential primary results just certified Saturday by Secretary of State Debra Bowen is 204 for Hillary Clinton, 166 for Barack Obama. That’s based on the final certified results by congressional district; if you want to see ’em by county, that’s here.

Hey, I was close!

California’s final results are part of how Obama widened his lead over this weekend. For the total, national delegate count, I find CNN‘s interface easiest to follow — they have it at 1,618 (1,411 pledged, 207 superdelegates) for Obama and 1,479 (1,242 pledged, 237 superdelegates) for Clinton. The Associated Press has it slighly different, at 1,617 to 1,498; that’s well presented by the Washington Post.
