With more than two-thirds of votes counted, Bernie Sanders was projected to win Oregon’s Democratic primary on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

Leading Hillary Clinton 53 to 47 percent, Sanders was expected to take the majority of Oregon’s 61 pledged delegates. The victory makes Oregon the first primary contest closed to unaffiliated voters that Sanders has won.

At a campaign rally in California Tuesday night, Sanders pledged to stay in the race until “the last ballot is cast.”

“We won a great victory in the state of Washington a few months ago, we just won Oregon and we’re going to win California,” said Sanders. “I am getting to like the West Coast!”
