The Texas Democratic Party is denying Hillary Rodham Clinton's request to scrutinize signatures from caucus-goers.

The state party chairman says Texas Democrats will not set up what he calls "an unnecessary, ad hoc 'verification' process that could effectively disqualify delegates."

Clinton's campaign says it received more than 2,000 complaints of violations following the March 4th vote. It says people reported results being taken from head or hand counts instead of a written roll and that caucuses began before precinct polling places closed.

More than a million people voted in the caucuses, which began the process of choosing 67 pledged convention delegates.

In an unofficial and incomplete caucus tally, the state Democratic Party reported Barack Obama was ahead of Clinton 56 percent to 44 percent.
