Tuesday, Senator Barack Obama won the state of Oregon but lost Kentucky to Democratic rival Senator Hillary Clinton. To date, Barack Obama has accumulated 1,962 delegate votes to Clinton’s 1,777. In order to secure the Democratic nomination, both candidates will need to win 2,026 votes.
Political analysts conclude that even though Obama is in the lead and the apparent front runner, it is more than likely that he will not make the total numbers allotted. Therefore, the final decision on who will be the Democratic nominee for President will be decided in August.
But this has not slowed down Senator Hillary Clinton. Despite trailing Obama in delegate votes, Senator Clinton has made no indication that she will end her campaign. With the latest win of Kentucky under her belt, Clinton vows to continue to “fight” in her quest to become the first woman President of The United States.
