Tuesday’s primaries in Kentucky and Oregon will not decide the Republican and Democratic Party nominations, but Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump are all looking for big wins to kick off the general election with momentum.
In Kentucky, with 15 percent of precincts reporting, Bernie Sanders leads with 47 percent of the vote to Hillary Clintons’ 46.1 percent, according to Associated Press.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has all but guaranteed herself the Democratic presidential nomination, but it ain’t over ‘til it’s over, as Yogi Berra once said, and losing ground to Sanders in the last few races leading into the general election against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is certainly something she wants to avoid.
Following ballot box tampering in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and dramatic disruptions at a Democratic Party convention in Nevada over the weekend, Senator Bernie Sanders is looking for some big, positive coverage that can only come from winning a primary.
“Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change, and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals,” Sanders said in a statement following the upheaval in Nevada, adding, “The Democratic leadership used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place.”
Sanders supporters reportedly tossed chairs and even left life-threatening messages for Nevada state party chairwoman Roberta Lange after her phone number was publicly released. See the moment that caused the backlash here:
