Barack Obama had some competition in last night's West Virginia Democratic Presidential Primary. Inmate No. 11593-051 - AKA Keith Judd - was also on the ballot.

Judd, currently serving 17 and a half years for extortion, pulled down 40 percent of the Democratic vote, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press. Judd only needed 15 percent of the vote to secure at least one delegate in his name at the Democratic National Convention later this summer.

If indeed Judd's delegates show up at the Charlotte, N.C., Democratic convention, they'll have some anti-Obama company. Anti-abortion candidate Randall Terry received 18 percent of the vote in the Oklahoma Democratic Primary, securing one national delegate.

Additionally, a lawyer from Tennessee, John Wolfe, won 18,000 votes in the Louisiana primary.
