Trump just 76 delegates short of clinching GOP nomination
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is within 76 delegates of clinching the Republican nomination for president with his win in the Oregon primary.
With no one else left in the race, the only question is which state will put him over the top. He might have to wait until June 7, the last day for primaries.
The New York billionaire has won at least 18 delegates in Oregon, though there were significant votes for candidates who have quit the race. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won at least four delegates apiece. There are two delegates left to be allocated.
Oregon allocates delegates in proportion to the statewide vote, so anyone getting more than 3.5 percent of the vote gets delegates.
