KY, Oregon and Delegate Math
Polls close at 6pm ET in most of Kentucky and 8pm PT in almost all of Oregon.
There are 200 superdelegates who have not yet declared. Superdelegates can change their mind up until the convention. In addition to pledged delegate counts, they can consider electability in November, the electoral map, the popular vote and anything else they deem significant in arriving at their decision.
But, since the media is so focused on delegate math, here are the numbers from an article in today's Washington Post.
- Kentucky has 51 pledged delegates, Oregon has 52.
- 200 Superdelegates have yet to choose a candidate.
- Both are closed primaries open only to Democrats.
- The remaining primaries are: Puerto Rico on June 1 with 55 pledged delegates and Montana and South Dakota on June 3. Montana has 16 pledged delegates and S.D. has 15.
- Hillary's campaign says the number of pledged delegates necessary to win the nomination is 2210, including Florida and Michigan. Obama's campaign says it's 2025 because FL and MI don't count.
