At one p.m. ET, NBC declared that Romney had won the Nevada caucus. This was not a shocker though the early call might have been -- it was based purely on "entrance polls." AP calls it for him but CNN, with newfound caution, says it will not call it until the votes are actually in.
Ben Smith at Politico.com has a fascinating claim by Bill Clinton of "voter suppression" in Nevada, with the culinary workers allegedly telling people who want to vote for Hillary that they will be given a shift that will prevent that. See the E&P link below or go to Politico for the full story.
As customary, I will be blogging the rhetoric and the results all afternoon here but mainly at E&P. UPDATE: See blog posts above and the E&P story for details on how Hillary and McCain won their races. Here is the handy link for E&P and below that the official Ralph Wiggum for president political ad : http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003699288
