Hillary Clinton went past the number of delegates needed to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday, making her the first woman to become the presumptive nominee of a major political party.
However, Clinton's opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, vowed to stay in the race, saying it's not over until the party's convention in July.
Clinton won four of the six Democratic primaries held on Tuesday. She has 2,755 delegates, including superdelegates. Sanders has 1,852 delegates with superdelegates.
New York businessman Donald Trump secured the Republican presidential nomination last week, and on Tuesday he won all five of the Republican primaries. He has 1,536 GOP delegates pledged to support him at the party's convention this summer.
Here is where the candidates for the Republican nomination and those for the Democratic nomination stand in the delegate count after Tuesday's primaries.
For the Republicans:
The number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination is 1,237. As of Wednesday, there are 37 Republican delegates yet to be allotted.
On the Democratic side:
– 2,755 delegates, including 571 superdelegates
– 1,852 delegates, including 48 superdelegates.
