US election: AP says Clinton wins Democratic nomination

AP news agency names Clinton presumptive Democratic nominee based on count of superdelegates who say their support her.

Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president, the Associated Press news agency reports. 

An AP 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.

Based on the count, AP named her the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee almost eight years to the day she conceded to now-President Barack Obama.

But the campaign of Bernie Sanders, her rival, said declaring Clinton the presumptive nominee was a rush to judgment.

The campaign said the Democratic Party's presidential pick is dependent on superdelegates who can still change their minds between now and the July convention.
