Trump Supporters Hold Victory Party In Eugene

Rachael McDonald

As expected, presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump was the winner in Oregon's primary Tuesday.  Trump supporters gathered at a victory party in Eugene to watch returns.

Daniels: "According to Fox we are at 64%. I promised my boss 65 at the minimum…"
State campaign Director, Jacob Daniels, announced results to a roomful of Trump supporters.
Mark Schulenberg, a Eugene businessman, was one of dozens who gathered to watch the returns. He says he supports Trump because he considers him a political outsider with business acumen.
Schulenberg: "He's a maverick and we need a leader and a maverick with new ideas rather than just running government as usual, government as usual and just managing the country. And that scares a lot of people."
Schulenberg believes Trump can win in Oregon in November.
