Barack Obama has defeated John Wolfe Jr. in the Democratic primary in Arkansas. With 81 percent of precincts reporting, Obama, the president of the United States, has 59.5 percent of the vote while Wolfe, a lawyer from Tennessee, has 40.5 percent.

Wolfe, who remains largely unknown and spent very little money campaigning in Arkansas, more than doubled his share of the vote in the Louisiana primary, where he earned 12 percent of the vote against Obama.
