President Obama won both his primaries Tuesday, but faced fairly tight races -- facing minor challengers -- or no challengers at all.
In Kentucky's closed primary, the president won with 58 percent of the vote, as 42 percent of voters chose "uncommitted." In Arkansas, with 89 percent of precincts reporting, Obama won 59 percent versus 41 percent for John Wolfe, an attorney from Tennessee.
A recent independent poll had shown Wolfe trailing by as little as 7 points among likely Democratic voters in the state's largest congressional district, the 4th District.
The primaries Tuesday in Arkansas and Kentucky follow West Virginia's May 8 primary, in which federal inmate Keith Judd took 41 percent of the vote in the Democratic presidential primary.
