OR and KY Primaries Today

Today are the Kentucky and Oregon primaries for the Democratic Presidential Primary. While Senator Obama is hoping to seal his nomination by achieving the needed delegate majority of 2,026 (he currently has 1,915), Senator Clinton is hoping a strong win in Kentucky could validate her claims that Obama cannot win in swing states and among white, working-class voters. However, the Democratic party has started to work towards unity in the last couple days, with Senator John Edwards coming out and endorsing Senator Obama. If Obama achieves the needed delegate count today, which many have forecasted that he will, the pressure for Senator Clinton will increase tenfold, and many feel that she will be forced to drop out.
Please stay turned to the Real Republican Majority for updates.
