OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — President Barack Obama collected the most votes in the Oklahoma Democratic primary, but lost in 15 counties.

With more than 90 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Obama won 55 percent of the vote. Four other candidates combined for 45 percent of the vote, including anti-abortion activist Randall Terry who had more than 18 percent of the vote.

According to Democratic Party rules, Terry is eligible for a delegate since he won more than 15 percent of the statewide vote. Until Tuesday, Obama had won all of the Democratic delegates awarded so far.

Terry beat Obama in 12 counties, mostly in western Oklahoma. Jim Rogers of Midwest City beat Obama in three counties.

Terry acknowledges he can't win the presidency but says he hopes to cause Obama's defeat in the fall.
