Dallas (AP) _ The Hillary Clinton campaign in Texas says it may
mount a legal challenge to the state's caucus results.

Clinton campaign officials are citing what they call ``hundreds
of complaints'' of mischief caused by the Barack Obama campaign at
caucus sites across the state.

The Clinton officials cite evidence that Obama supporters
illegally obtained caucus packets in several precincts throughout
the state. Under caucus rules, whomever has the packet is placed in
charge of the caucus. They also say Obama supporters locked Clinton
voters out of several caucuses.

Texas has a hybrid system where two-thirds of the delegates are
awarded through a primary and another third come from 8,700
precinct caucuses that began immediately after polls closed.

Earlier, the democratic presidential campaigns traded
accusations of other primary day shenanigans, prompting the party
to issue a stern reprimand to follow the rules.
