Hillary Clinton Gives In; Declares Victory Over Sanders

More primaries to go, but numbers are telling

Hillary Clinton said last night “we have reached a milestone”. A day after some news organizations in the U.S. declared she will win the Democratic presidential nomination, she declared the same after the results came in from five more primaries. There are still more primaries – two next week in Washington and Philadelphia – but the numbers appear to be there, making Clinton the first woman to lead a major party in a bid for the White House. Still, Bernie Sanders is not ready to concede; he says it’s not over yet and will continue to fight through primaries next week in Washington and Philadelphia. He says the mission is more than just beating Donald Trump, it’s transforming the country.
