After clinching Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton padding delegate lead

The Associated

Having already clinched the nomination, Hillary Clinton is padding her delegate lead after a win in New Jersey.

With 126 delegates at stake, Clinton will win at least 50. Bernie Sanders will pick up at least 37. Many delegates remain outstanding as votes continue to be counted.

That means based on primaries and caucuses to date, Clinton has 1,862 and Sanders has 1,558.

THer lead is even bigger when including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate.

Clinton has 2,433 to 1,606.

It takes 2,383 to win. Clinton reached that number Monday night, following big wins in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands as well as a batch of support from superdelegates.

New Jersey is among the last six states voting on Tuesday.
