Democrats on the island of Guam held caucuses Saturday. Come Sunday -- the island is in a time zone well ahead of the continental U.S. -- the votes were still being tallied, but according to the AP Barack Obama is leading Hillary Clinton, with Obama having earned 1,951 delegates to Clinton's 1,748.

Guam, a U.S. territory, has no vote in the general election. But it will send a total of eight pledged delegates, each with half a vote, to the Democratic convention this summer, along with five superdelegates.
