Hil­lary de­feats San­ders in Ken­tucky pri­mary

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

KEN­TUCKY—Clin­ton nar­rowly de­feated San­ders in Ken­tucky, a state where she was not ex­pected to win. San­ders bested her in Ore­gon, a state that played to his strengths.

In Ken­tucky, the two can­di­dates will likely split the 55 del­e­gates up for grabs. In Ore­gon, San­ders will take only a hand­ful more of the 61 del­e­gates that were awarded.

Clin­ton’s size­able lead in del­e­gates means it is likely she will even­tu­ally be her party’s nom­i­nee, but she re­mains more than 100 del­e­gates short of seal­ing the deal. The Demo­cratic pri­mary now hits a two-week lull, with the fi­nal set ma­jor con­tests, in­clud­ing Cal­i­for­nia, sched­uled for June 7.

Clin­ton, who spent the past two days cam­paign­ing in Ken­tucky, would like to lock up the nom­i­na­tion and turn her at­ten­tion to the Nov. 8 gen­eral elec­tion and pre­sump­tive Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump.—Agen­cies
