Clinton reaching the more than 2,000 and 380 more delegates are needed to become the presumptive nominee.

Hillary Clinton is heading into the last “Super Tuesday” with some extra momentum.

Clinton is making history, qualifying as the first woman to lead a major political party.

Clinton received fresh commitments from super delegates on Monday, pushing her further ahead.

On Tuesday, the polls open for multiple state nominating contests including the big prize states of California and New Jersey.

Clinton acknowledged her historic moment at a rally on Monday but also pointed out that the race is not over, “according to the news we are in the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment, but we still have work to do, don’t we?”

Polls in New Jersey give Clinton a substantial lead over sanders.

In California, both candidates are neck-and-neck.
