Hillary Wins Kentucky

By on 5.20.08 | 8:02PM

Hillary Clinton won Kentucky big and she won it early. With a little under half of the vote in, she is up 58 percent to 38 percent. Clinton's margin isn't exactly West Virginia-like but no other state is as demographically challenging to Barack Obama as Robert Byrd's home. Again, two words: watch Oregon.

UPDATE: With 91 percent of precincts reporting, it's a 35-point shellacking. Whatever her prospects for the nomination, Hillary has definitely driven home the point that Obama has a problem winning working-class whites.
