While Clinton claims that it’s far from over, Obama keeps at a steady pace and encourages voters for a change while bringing in record numbers of gatherers.
“I am here to report that my bet has paid off, that my faith in the American people was vindicated,” Obama said in Tom McCall Waterfront Park. “This is the message that Oregon is going to send on Tuesday. We are tired of business as usual, and we are going to change America.”
Many waited for hours awaiting the presidential hopeful while packing onto the lawn of the park, watching from the bridge and boats on the river.
The record number of 75,000 fans counted by fire department officials at the riverside park in Portland, Ore. was Obama’s biggest crowd of his campaign which, coming to a close, is closing on a high note.
“Wow, wow, wow…. We have had a lot of rallies. This is the most spectacular setting, the most spectacular crowd we have had this entire campaign,” said Obama of the rally.
Looking forward, Oregon has 52 delegates at stake on Wednesday, and Kentucky 51.
As hinted, Obama is expected by many to get a solid win in Oregon’s Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, who was winding up her campaign in Kentucky earlier is the favorite in that state’s primary on Tuesday.
Clinton teased at Obama for not campaigning in Kentucky in the final hours while adding, “I’ve got the whole state to myself. What a treat.”
