Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee for president.

She will then be the first woman to top the ticker of a major U.S. political party.

Counts of delegates won in primaries and caucuses and a survey of superdelegates from both ABC News and the Associated Press shows Clinton with the overall support of the required 2,383 delegates.

Now the presumptive nominee, she will formally accept the nomination from her party in July at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
