On Monday night the Associated Press announced that Hillary Clinton had secured enough delegate votes to become the official Democratic National Convention nominee. As the first woman to do so in the history of this country, Clinton secured 1,812 pledged delegates and 572 superdelegates, bringing her grand total to 2,384 delegates. That's one more than the required amount of 2,383

With Tuesday's primaries taking place in six states, she is sure to accumulate even more. This is a historic moment for not only the former First Lady and Secretary of State but for women all over

On the campaign trail in California Monday night Clinton told the press, “My supporters are passionate. They are committed. They have voted for me in great numbers across the country for many reasons.But among the reasons is their belief that having a woman president would make a great statement — a historic statement — about what kind of country we are, what we stand for. It’s really emotional.” In true Clinton fashion, despite having the number of required delegates to clinch the nomination, she is still focused on the states who are voting Tuesday

So what does her challenger, Bernie Sanders have to say about all of this? His camp released a statement shortly after the AP announced that Clinton had clinched the nomination

“It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgement, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee’s clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer

Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then. They include more than 400 superdelegates who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race

Our job from now until the convention is to convince those superdelegates that Bernie is by far the strongest candidate against Donald Trump."
Bernie Sanders is not the only one who is mad at the media calling it early for Clinton, his supporters took to twitter to voice their frustration and to encourage voters to still turn out at the polls

Although supporters of Sanders are correct, the convention could make the news official after Tuesday's primaries
