PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Sen. Bernie Sanders says he’s hoping for “a very large voter turnout” in Oregon this week to secure a win against Hillary Clinton in the state’s primary election.

Sanders told The Oregonian/OregonLive (https://bit.ly/24TX9cq ) on Saturday that his agenda is one that Oregon residents “feel comfortable with” living in “one of the most progressive states” in the U.S.

The Vermont senator has not yet won in a state with a closed primary like Oregon’s, where only voters who are registered as Democrats or Republicans can pick a presidential nominee on their ballot.

But Sanders says “if voter turnout is high, we will win.”

In Oregon, roughly 160,000 voters proactively took steps this year to make themselves eligible to cast a presidential ballot during the closed primary on Tuesday.
