Update: Obama leading in Wyoming caucuses

CHEYENNE, Wyoming (CNN) – With more than three-fourths of precincts reporting, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois held a strong lead Saturday in the Wyoming Democratic caucus over his main rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.

Obama led Clinton 59 percent to 40 percent, with 78 percent of precincts reporting.

The caucus thrust the state - which has only 12 delegates - into the spotlight because of the close race between Obama and Clinton, in which every delegate counts. Although Wyoming typically is not a stop for Democrats looking for delegates to clinch the party's presidential nomination, its numbers could make a different this year because of the delegate deadlock.

Seven delegates will be apportioned based on caucus results, according to John Millin, head of the state Democratic Party. The remaining five will be allocated at the state convention, which will happen Memorial Day weekend in Jackson.
