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.
Hillary Clinton is expected to clinch the nomination on Tuesday and her team already set up the party in New York.
The event – officially advertised as a watch party for the New Jersey and California results – is held at the massive Navy Yard Greenhouse and Hillary Clinton herself will speak.
Admission is first-come, first-serve, but expect airport-style security.
