Hillary Clinton Has Clinched Democratic Nomination, Survey Reports
New York Times, June 6, 2016
Hillary Clinton has reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Democratic nomination for president, The Associated Press reported Monday night, an achievement that would make her the first female nominee of a major party for the presidency.
Mrs. Clinton had been expected to clinch the nomination on Tuesday after polls closed in New Jersey.
But The Associated Press surveyed superdelegates on Monday night, and their reporting showed that Mrs. Clinton had secured the overall support of the required 2,383 delegates, according to a news release.
