Hillary Clinton reportedly has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee for president, and will be first woman to top the ticket of a major US political party.

An Associated Press count of pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses and a survey of party insiders known as superdelegates shows Clinton with the overall support of the required 2,383 delegates.

According to FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver, Clinton will likely clinch a majority of elected delegates during Tuesday’s batch of state contests. 

California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota all hold primaries Tuesday, and North Dakota holds a caucus.

Assuming that the AP’s count holds, Clinton will formally accept her party’s nomination in July at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
