BREAKING NEWS: Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic nominee and the first woman to top a major party’s Presidential ticket

The Associated Press is naming Hillary Clinton the winner of the Democratic nomination based on her superdelegate support.

The AP determined tonight that Clinton has enough superdelegates in her corner to win the nomination at this summer’s convention, aside from tomorrow’s elections in six states and one final contest next week in the District of Columbia.

Clinton needs 2,383 delegates total to become the nominee. The AP determined she has exactly that much support when the party officials backing her are included in the tally.
