Bernie Sanders has won the Oregon Democratic Primary, according to the Associated Press.
In front of a crowd of more than 11,000, Sanders' wife, Jane, went onstage and whispered in his ear that he had won the state.
"We just won Oregon and we are going to win California," he said. "I am beginning to like the West Coast.”
Oregon had 74 delegates up for grabs. Sanders had 1,473 delegates going into Tuesday's primaries.

Sanders Shows No Signs of Stopping
Bernie Sanders held a rally in Carson, California Tuesday night, showing no signs of slowing down his campaign despite growing pressure from fellow Democrats to drop out of the race and support Clinton.
"This is the beginning of the final push to win California" and its 475 delegates, he said.
In thanking his supporters, Sanders singled out actor Danny Glover, who he said spent his entire "adult life" fighting economic, social and racial injustice.
Sanders also said that he continues to beat Donald Trump in the polls, while the polls favor Trump over Clinton.
"Whether a national poll or state poll, we do much better beating Donald Trump than Clinton," he said. "The Democratic party wants to be certain that Donald Trump is defeated...we, together, are the campaign to do that."
