Hillary Clinton Clinches Nomination (Unless You Exclude Superdelegates)
Although the campaign of Bernie Sanders (I-VT) might beg to differ, former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has clinched her party's presidential nomination by reaching a delegate count of 2,383. This number includes pledged delegates and superdelegates. However, a Sanders spokesman has stated that the superdelegates should not be counted, because they won't vote on the nomination until the Democrat convention.
