CBS News affiliate calls 2012 presidential race for Barack Obama weeks ahead of election

---

2012 presidential election is still more than two weeks away, but on Friday a CBS News affiliate in Arizona called the race for President Barack Obama.

For 17 seconds, Phoenix, Arizona CBS News affiliate KPHO ran a lower third graphic that showed that Obama had won the Nov. 6 election over Gov. Mitt Romney with 99% of the precincts reporting. The lower third graphic appeared around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, during an episode of "The People's Court."

The CBS News graphic showed Obama winning the election with 43 percent of the vote nationwide to Romney's 40 percent --- or 40,237,966 votes to 38,116,216. It is unclear who garnered the other 17 percent in the fictional election results.

KPHO's general manager did not return The Daily Caller's request for comment by time of publication.
