CP: Missing delegate allocation from USA Today TN page

The results for districts 5 and 9 are either incomplete or non-existent. According to the TN Democratic Party, both of these districts are allocated 6 delegates. Need accurate results -- any sources? --Caffeinated 15:03, 20 February 2008 (EST)

I've filled in these numbers now based on the state Democratic Party final allocation numbers (link in reference section on main page.) However, the final actual vote tally from district 9 remains lacking, because the USAToday page still only reports 50% results in for that district, and less than 100% for most other districts as well, although mostly more than that. Reported results percentages are as follows (as of Feb 23)
CD1 - 92%
CD2 - 97%
CD3 - 100%
CD4 - 100%
CD5 - 99%
CD6 - 100%
CD7 - 89%
CD8 - 96%
CD9 - 50%
Presumably because the delegation ended up tied from CD5 despite Obama winning by a fair margin, USAToday didn't feel comfortable calling that until it was finalized, but I have no clue why no one seems to have final numbers for CD9, including the state party website and the state Secretary of State's site. --Steve Voght 15:59, 23 February 2008 (EST)
Thanks, Steve. I updated the portal page.--Caffeinated 13:18, 26 February 2008 (EST)
