Democrats Clinton, Sanders virtually tied in Kentucky nominating contest

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were effectively tied in Kentucky's Democratic presidential primary with 75 percent of the vote counted on Tuesday night.
The tight contest was yet another demonstration of how divided Democrats are in the drawn-out national race for the party's nomination.
Kentucky was not considered favorable terrain for Clinton, after neighboring West Virginia and Indiana both went to Sanders. Staving off a resounding defeat would give Clinton a little breathing room, as she looks forward to a lull in the primary campaign before the final contests on June 7.
