AP: Hillary clinches nomination


The Associated Press has reported a surge of super delegates have put former Secretary Hillary Clinton over the top with 2,383 delegates total making her the presumptive nominee.

Today is an historic day.  It’s the anniversary of D-Day, the anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy’s shooting death after winning the California primary in 1968 and the first time a woman will lead the ticket of a major party for the highest office in the land.

And you still need to vote tomorrow as lots of down ticket races depend on you.

    The Sanders campaign rejected the declaration that Clinton had clinched the party nod, citing its longstanding position that the superdelegates should not count until they actually vote at the convention – as they are free to switch sides before then.

    Sanders said: “There is nothing to concede – Secretary Clinton will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to win the Democratic nomination.”

    In the Dem. Primary there are 4051 pledged delegates to be won. To win the nomination absent any Superdelegates one needs to win 2,382 delegates, (59%).
    She won’t make 2,382 until the convention.
