AP: Hillary Clinton Presumptive Nominee

Late Monday night – on a day when no state voted – the Associated Press called the Democratic race. According to their calculations Hillary Clinton reached the necessary 2,383 delegated and is now the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Monday morning, Clinton was still missing 23 delegates, but the AP spent the day calling super delegates and upped her total delegate count.

Hillary Clinton is the first women to ever win the nomination of a major political party.

While the AP called the race, Clinton’s team was fast to point to the six remaining races today – don’t want voters to stay home only because they think it’s over, after all.
