Following her success in today’s Democratic Party primaries, Hillary Clinton has claimed victory in her quest to claim the party’s presidential nomination.
Clinton won the Californian, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota primaries. Her opponent, Bernie Sanders, won North Dakota and Montana.
US media organisations yesterday claimed Clinton had passed the required number of delegates to win the nomination. There was some concern that she might not win California but these have proved unfounded.
Clinton spoke to her supporters tonight and claimed her historic victory as the first woman to win the nomination of a major party. She also becomes the only spouse of a nominee or president to win nomination.
