As of tonight Hillary Clinton has secured the 2,383 delegates required to win the Democratic presidential nomination
According to the Associated Press Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president.
The AP's count of pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses and a survey of party insiders known as superdelegates shows Clinton with the overall support of the required 2,383 delegates and is now the presumptive nominee.
The news comes one day before primary contests in New Jersey and California where pundits believed she would pick up the nomination making that prediction moot.
Clinton, who will be the first woman in the 240-year history of the United States to lead the presidential ticket of a major political party, will formally accept her party's nomination in July at the DNC in Philly.
