"Uncommitted" Runs a Valiant (42%) but Ultimately Losing Campaign Against Obama (58%) in Kentucky

That "uncommitted" guy must have run a tough campaign against the president:
President Obama lost more than 40 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s Kentucky Democratic primary to the “uncommitted” option — the latest example of the incumbent president failing to win votes in an uncompetitive primary.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting in the Bluegrass State, Obama led “uncommitted” just 58 percent to 42 percent. Obama trailed in more than 60 Kentucky counties.

It was just the latest episode of the president taking less than 60 percent of the vote in a primary this year.
Arkansas is still counting the votes, and with 72% in John Wolfe is getting 41% of the vote against Obama. That's a lot of protest votes.  AP finally calls the race for Obama.  Results here.
