ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico is still counting ballots from its Democratic caucuses on Super Tuesday.

Hillary Rodham Clinton holds a slight lead over rival Barack Obama, holding 13 delegates to Obama's 12.

The state is still counting 17,000 provisional ballots given to voters because of long lines and a ballot shortage.

All that's really at stake are bragging rights to a victory by popular vote -- and one more delegate.

But Democratic Party officials say the count could last well into next week, right up until February 15th. That's when results have to be certified.

The state's party chairman has come under a firestorm of criticism for problems with voting on Super Tuesday, including from Governor Bill Richardson.

The chairman, Brian Colon, says he's sorry, and that he's even more disappointed than Richardson.
