Obama's 11th Straight Victory

AP: The Illinois senator won the primary in which Democrats living in more than 30 countries voted by Internet, mail and in person. The voting took place over the course of a week, beginning Feb. 5. Hillary Rodham Clinton has not won a nominating contest since Super Tuesday, more than two weeks ago.

More than 20,000 U.S. citizens living abroad voted in the primary, which ran from Feb. 5 to Feb. 12. Obama won about 65 percent of the vote, according to results released by the Democrats Abroad, an organization sanctioned by the national party. The 7 delegates yet to be awarded based on the global primary voting results.

UPDATE 2: Obama won Mexco 57% to 40%; Canada 63% to 36%; Japan 79 18, and France 72% to 27%. He won most European countries by 2-1 margins.

Clinton, for her part, scored a big victory in the Dominican Republican -- 90% to 10% -- and a narrower one in Israel -- 54% to 45%.

Smaller countries are also included: He won 2 votes to 0 in Lithuania; she won by the same margin in Malta.

And as far as Clinton-era flashpoints go, Obama won Rwanda 6 to 0, she won Somalia 1 to 0, and they tied Bosnia 1 to 1.
