split decision

Barack Obama is not only winning Oregon tonight by double digits, he surpassed a milestone in his campaign: a pledged delegate majority.

But with Hillary Clinton's 35-point spread in Kentucky tonight, she's emboldened and she's not going anywhere. She said in her victory speech tonight that more people have voted for her than for any other candidate in a Democratic primary... ever.

So once again, we have a split decision. Where do we go from here? With only two states and one territory left, we've got to let the voters in Montana, South Dakota, and Puerto Rico have their voices heard.

And we can't forget Michigan and Florida, who turned out over two million strong. As Democrats, we cannot disenfranchise anyone, let alone voters in pivotal swing states! Count the votes, and we'll see what happens. We've come this far, so let's play it out until the end.

June 3. We've got it in our sights now. Soon, we'll have a nominee to unite behind and we'll push onward for a Democratic White House in November.
