Clinton Makes Democratic Party History, More on the Unprecedented Moment

With the magic number of delegates needed to secure the party nomination, Hillary Clinton becomes the clear winner of the Democratic presidential primaries. She makes history as the first woman to be nominated for the presidency by a major political party.

Clinton cinched the remaining delegates she needed after a close win in yesterday’s primaries. She won four out of six primaries yesterday, coming out on top in California, New Jersey, South Dakota, and New Mexico. Her delegate count now reaches 2,777. This includes her impressive amount of super-delegates (574).

Even with the final primary in the District of Columbia on June 14, Clinton made a resounding victory speech in New Jersey. She thanks her supporters and those who worked on her campaign. In it, she also mentions her family and the struggles faced by Americans every day, speaking of how uniting the party and pushing for a better America knows no party bounds.

In a speech transcript by TIME Magazine, Clinton said:

“To be great, we can’t be small. We have to be as big as the values that define America. And we are a big-hearted, fair-minded country. We teach our children that this is one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Not just for people who look a certain way or worship a certain way or love a certain way. For all. Indivisible.”

Her message and her intentions are clear, as she calls to people regardless of political party to rally and vote for a better America. Addressing both Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton seems ready for the debates and the general election now more than ever. Her main objective now is to rally other voters behind her campaign, whether they voted for her in their respective primaries or not.

Clinton will be on the trail until the Democratic National Convention in July.
