Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in Oregon, according to AP and other sources.
Though Trump's opponents have long stood down, Trump is still pushing forward to cross the delegate threshold needed to secure the nomination, which is 1,237.
Before Tuesday's primary, he had about 1,143.
The billionaire businessman started the day by picking up nine delegates in Guam, and was fewer than 100 delegates shy of clinching the Republican nomination for president headed into the Oregon vote.
There were 28 delegates at stake in Oregon's Republican primary.
