Hillary avoids Kentucky kalamity with narrow win

Marathon Pundit at Mammoth Cave
The former First Lady is crawling towards the finish of the Democratic primary process. Barring a criminal indictment she'll probably make it, but she'll face a feisty and fresh Donald Trump this fall.

From the Lexington Herald-Leader:
Hillary Clinton squeaked out a narrow win over Bernie Sanders Tuesday in the Democratic presidential primary in Kentucky, a state she had won overwhelmingly in 2008 against Barack Obama.

With 99.7 percent of the precincts counted, Clinton led by about 1,800 votes.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' office said at 10:30 p.m. that 769 votes in two precincts in Jefferson County had not yet been counted.

Even if Sanders captured all those votes, he could not catch up with Clinton, Grimes’ office said.
