(FOX NEWS) – Sen. Bernie Sanders won Oregon’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday night while front-runner Hillary Clinton appeared to have notched a narrow victory in Kentucky, a split decision preventing the former secretary of state from turning her full attention and resources to battling Donald Trump.

The outcomes do not dramatically change the Democratic delegate count and the former secretary of state remains on track to clinch the nomination on June 7 in the New Jersey primary. But Sanders’ strong performances threaten to expose Clinton’s weaknesses before she takes on Trump in the fall.

With 71 percent of precincts reporting in Oregon, Sanders led Clinton 54 percent to 46 percent, a difference of just over 32,000 votes.

“We just won Oregon, and we’re going to win California,” the Vermont senator told supporters in Carson, Calif., where he vowed to “take our fight” to July’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
