Washington (AP) Senator John McCain now has a commanding lead in the delegate count for the Republican presidential nomination while Democrat Hillary Clinton has an edge over Barack Obama.

With the results still incomplete, McCain won at least 420 delegates in the Super Tuesday contests to 130 for Mitt Romney and 99 for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.

Overall, McCain leads with 522 delegates, to 223 for Romney and 142 for Huckabee. It takes 1,191 to win the nomination at this summer's convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Clinton's delegate lead from Super Tuesday is much narrower. Clinton has at least 395 to Obama's 357, also in incomplete results.

Overall, Clinton has 656 delegates to 559 for Obama, with 2,025 delegates required to claim the nomination in Denver at this summer's convention.
