Story highlights

Hillary Clinton narrowly won the Missouri Democratic primary on Thursday, but it's still not clear whether Donald Trump or Ted Cruz triumphed in the Republican contest there

A spokesperson for the Missouri secretary of state's office told CNN that 100% of precincts have reported, but some absentee and provisional ballots remain uncounted

Washington CNN —  

Hillary Clinton narrowly won the Missouri Democratic primary on Thursday, but it’s still not clear whether Donald Trump or Ted Cruz triumphed in the Republican contest there.

Clinton leads Bernie Sanders by 1,531 votes, with some absentee votes still to be counted, and earlier Thursday, Sanders announced he would not contest the results. Trump leads Cruz by less than half a percentage point, so CNN has not projected a winner in the Republican contest.

It could end up being fairly consequential in races that will come down to a delegate count, every vote matters.

5 takeaways from Super Tuesday 3

Stephanie Fleming, a spokeswoman for the Missouri secretary of state’s office, told CNN late Tuesday that 100% of precincts have reported, but some absentee and provisional ballots remain uncounted. These ballots will be counted in the coming days. Overseas absentee ballots will be accepted until Friday at noon.

The secretary of state’s office could not say how many uncounted ballots remain.

Missouri results

The recount law in Missouri allows a second-place finisher to request a recount if the margin of victory is less than half a percentage point. As the count stands now, both margins of victory are small enough that Cruz would be able to request a recount to verify the findings, if he chose to do so.

The delegate stakes are high on the Republican side, where 12 statewide at-large delegates will be awarded to whichever candidate emerges the winner. Early Wednesday morning, Cruz’s campaign manager told CNN’s Sunlen Serfaty that the Cruz campaign has “no plans” to request a recount.

The vote count in the Democratic race at this time is:

Clinton: 310,602 votes, 49.6%

Sanders: 309,071 votes, 49.4%

The vote count in the Republican race at this time is:

Trump: 382,093 votes, 40.9%

Cruz: 380,367 votes, 40.7%

John Kasich: 92,533 votes, 9.9%

Marco Rubio: 57,006 votes, 6.1%

As of now, CNN has allocated the following delegates in Missouri:

Democrats:

Clinton: 36

Sanders: 35

Republicans:

Trump: 25

Cruz: 15

Unallocated pending further results: 12

Kasich and Rubio are not expected to win any delegates in Missouri.
