Obama counting on Oregon primary for a win

Hillary Clinton is expected to win big in Kentucky, but Barack Obama is counting on Oregon.

The race is looking close in Oregon.  If Obama wins the state, he's likely to have a majority of all pledged delegates.  But he'll still be short the number needed to win.  The candidate says, "We still have a number of contests, including Montana, before we can secure nomination."

Voters in Oregon will not be heading to the polls when they cast their votes.  Oregon is the only state to conduct its primary voting by mail.

Voters began receiving ballots earlier this month and had two weeks to return them.  52 superdelegates are up for grabs in the state.
