Hillary Clinton Clinches Historic Democratic Nomination

US Democratic Presidential Hopeful, Hillary Clinton, has made history by becoming the first woman to be the Presidential nominee of a major political party in the country.

The former First Lady thanked her supporters for helping her reach the milestone, saying it was victory for all American women.

She won four of the six states that voted in primaries on Tuesday night including California, New Jersey, South Dakota and New Mexico

“Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone, the first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party’s nominee”” she told cheering crowds at a rally in New York.



    Polls had suggested the contest in California would be tight, but Clinton won by a margin of around 13%.

    Her rival, Bernie Sanders, who is trailing behind in delegates’ number, secured victories only in the Montana and North Dakota caucuses but has refused to quit the race.

    Sanders had hoped to win in California, the country’s most populous state, in order to boost his claims that he would be a better and more acceptable presidential contender than Clinton.

    President Barrack Obama has called to congratulate Clinton, who was his former secretary of state, but has not officially endorsed either she or Sanders.
