Clinton Has Enough Delegates To Win Democratic Nomination

With the support of 2,383 delegates to the national Democratic convention, Hillary Clinton is poised to become the nation’s first major-party female presidential nominee, according to The Hill.

The Associated Press reported Monday night that the candidate had reached the delegate threshold necessary to win the nomination in the first round of balloting at next month’s convention. Her rival, Bernie Sanders, continues to point out that superdelegates supporting Clinton could switch their allegiances and make the Vermont senator their standard-bearer in the November general election.

The former secretary of state declared while campaigning in California: “According to the news, we are on the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment, but we still have work to do.” She was referring to Tuesday’s Democratic primaries in six states, including the delegate-rich California.

The Sanders campaign argued Monday night that the AP and Clinton were declaring victory too soon. “It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgment, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee’s clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer,” the candidate’s staff explained.

The statement continued: “Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then.”
