Hillary Clinton had a historic night winning four out of the six primaries and securing the delegates necessary to wrap up the Democratic nomination. Clinton won at the ballot boxes in New Jersey (63.3% to 36.7%), New Mexico (51.5% to 48.5%), South Dakota (51.0% to 49.0%), and California (55.8% to 43.2%). Meanwhile, Sanders won the North Dakota caucuses (64.2% to 25.6%) and the Montana primary (51.1% to 44.6%). All eyes were on California which offered the most delegates of any state. While polls indicated that the results would be close, Clinton pulled off a decisive win. Some votes are still being counted, so these numbers will updated throughout the day.
In Brooklyn, New York, Clinton spoke to a crowd of supporters and said that she is proud to be the Democratic nominee. She spoke about the historic moment of becoming the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major party by saying, “Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone, the first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party’s nominee!” Clinton praised the efforts of Sanders and his years of service in Congress before calling for unity in the Democratic Party to ensure the defeat of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
