WASHINGTON D.C. — Here you go. Remember, state wins mean nothing on the Democratic side. We need to wait until Chuck Todd or some other politico’s politico calculate the delegates on a district by district basis. Those delegates are listed in parenthesis.

Democrats

Hillary Clinton:
New Jersey (127)
New York (281)
Massachusetts (121)
Oklahoma (47)
Tennessee (85)
Arkansas (47)

Barack Obama:
Illinois (185)
Georgia (103)
Alabama (60)
Delaware (23)
North Dakota (21)
Utah (29)
Kansas (41)
Connecticut (60)
Minnesota (88)

Mike Gravel:
None, but he’s still in the race!!

Republicans

John McCain:
New York (101)
Illinois (70)
New Jersey (52)
Connecticut (30)
Oklahoma (41)
Delaware (18)

Romney:
Massachusetts (43)
Utah (36)

Huckabee:
Alabama (48)
Arkansas (34)
West Virginia (30)
Georgia (72)

In his speech tonight, Huckabee claimed that this is a two-man race, and he’s in it. Meaning that Romney’s win in his home state of Massachusetts and in Mormon-heavy Utah aren’t worth anything. That’s a bit of spin that will probably be as effective as John Edwards’ post-Iowa claim that he and Obama were the only real contenders left in the Democratic race.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
