WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is just 90 delegates short of clinching the Democratic presidential nomination.

She lost in Oregon, but kept it close with Bernie Sanders in Kentucky to maintain her big delegate lead overall.

On Tuesday, Sanders picked up 61 delegates to Clinton’s 52. Three delegates remain to be allocated, pending final vote tallies.

Based on primaries and caucuses to date, Clinton has 1,768 while Sanders has 1,494 — giving her a lead of 274 delegates.

Clinton’s advantage is even bigger when including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate.

She now has a total of 2,293, or 96 percent of the 2,383 needed to win, according to the Associated Press count. Sanders has 1,533.
