Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton (click here) appear to have split victories in the Oregon and Kentucky primaries Tuesday night.
With all counties reporting in Kentucky, Clinton was leading Sanders by a narrow margin of 1,924 votes out of more than 450,000 cast. Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes told CNN that Clinton was the "unofficial winner," but the Associated Press said the race was too close to call.
Sanders had a more comfortable victory in Oregon, where he was leading Clinton by more than seven points. De facto GOP nominee Donald Trump, the only remaining candidate, easily won the state's Republican primary.
