It was once her dream in the year 2008 but unfortunately she was defeated by only Barack Obama who’s now the President. She came into race again for the Democratic Presidential nomination race, for White House 2016, and at this time, Hillary Clinton has clinched the ‘trophy’ number. On Monday night Clinton passed the mark, making history as the first woman to become a presidential nominee of a major political party in the United States of America.
After the primary in Puerto Rico on Sunday, Clinton was remaining with only 23 delegates to reach the expected number: 2383. On Monday night, 24 delegates committed to her, making her automatically surpassing the expected digit by one delegate, hence she has secured 2384 delegates. She couldn’t wait to share her joy with an audience at a campaign stop in Long Beach, Calif. “I got to tell you, according to the news, we are on the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment, but we still have work to do, don’t we?” Mrs. Clinton said. “We have six elections tomorrow, and we’re going to fight hard for every single vote, especially right here in California.” She expressed her ongoing determination.
The fact that she already has the number hasn’t stopped her from pushing on for the remaining states in the nomination race. The republicans having already a nominee, that’s Donald Trump, and Clinton having also succeeded on the Democrats’ side, it means each party now have a flag bearer for the national general election. Clinton now prepares to fight Trump in the campaign for White House.
