See all census tracts in a state?

Is it possible to use the API to fetch all tracts within a state? I tried the following request, but failed:

http://api.census.gov/data/2011/acs5?key=af4bfcf4a660196ff6a297eadfa70331f&get=NAME,B19013_001E,B19013_001M,NAME&for=tract:*&in=state:02+county:*

  1. It is possible, however, I believe we do not allow wildcards within an "in" section. To accomplish this you should query each county individually.
