Clinton on path to clinch before California
WASHINGTON - With her New York win, Hillary Clinton's support among superdelegates puts her on track to clinch the Democratic nomination outright before the national convention - even before results from the California primary, which Bernie Sanders was counting on winning to stand a chance.
Clinton added 33 new endorsements over the past month, according to an Associated Press survey, expanding her overwhelming support among the party officials who can back any candidate, despite Sanders' recent string of victories in Wisconsin and the West. Sanders picked up seven.
The AP count, including New York:
- Based on primaries and caucuses: Clinton leads, 1,428 to 1,151.
- Including superdelegates: 1,930 to 1,189.
Sanders must win 73 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates to get the nomination. It takes 2,383 to win.
