CNN has called the state of Washington for Barack Obama. With 48 percent of precincts reporting, he has 67 percent to Clinton's 32 percent.

Keep in mind, though, that in the Democratic nomination process, delegates are awarded proportionally; as such, the winner of a state may not necessarily win the majority of the delegates there (Nevada is a good example; Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in that state, but because of the way the delegates broke down, Obama actually came out of the state with one more delegate than she).
