PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Democratic Party says the results from Oregon's presidential primary election give Barack Obama 31 pledged delegates to Hillary Clinton's 21. Obama thumped Clinton, wining 58 percent of the vote, which was counted a week ago. But the precise allocation of delegates, announced Tuesday, awaited final results and calculations down to the district level. Of the 52 unpledged delegates, the party says, 18 are elected on the basis of statewide totals, and 34 on the basis of results in congressional districts. The party's delegation to the national convention will number 65. A dozen of those will be unpledged "superdelegates." Obama leads in endorsements among the superdelegates by 4 to 2. A 65th delegate, unpledged, is to be elected at the party's state convention.
