Alabama projection

FNC has projected that Mike Huckabee will win Alabama. AL has an open primary that will award 45 delegates. The winner will take all if he draws 50 percent of the vote; otherwise, the delegates will be awarded proportionally by congressional district.

One note here: The returns are split at 33 between Huckabee and McCain, but FNC has called the state. No explanation for the apparent leap of faith the desk is making here.
