Barack Obama expected to score better in the Oregon primary

While Hillary Clinton scored big in the Kentucky primary, Barack Obama is expected to score better in the Oregon primary.  An Obama campaign spokesman in Louisville says he's not surprised his candidate lost in the Bluegrass state.

Clark Stevens says the campaign came to Kentucky, so voters could get to know Obama, but they knew a loss to Clinton was almost inevitable.

Stevens, Obama campaign spokesman says, "We came in here heavy underdogs so we knew we had a big hill to climb so we're proud of what we did and worked really hard organizing across the state and were happy with the excitement we saw and tonight puts us one step closer to the nomination."

Later Tuesday night, Obama is expected to celebrate his victory in Oregon.  He's actually in Iowa tonight, because that's where he won his first caucus back in January. 

He's also expected to claim a majority of the delegates at stake in all 56 contests on the campaign calendar.  Clinton says she has already dismissed that claim since it does not include Michigan or Florida.
