Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide says the AP’s call in the Democratic Party’s presidential primary is an “important milestone.”

Campaign manager Robby Mook says Clinton is still looking ahead to six states voting Tuesday, including New Jersey and California. He says Clinton “is working to earn every vote” and clinch the majority of pledged delegates up for grabs in the Democratic nominating process.

According to the AP count, Clinton now has the delegates needed to become the first woman nominated by a major U.S. political party. The count is based on pledged delegates awarded in primaries and caucuses, as well as super delegates – the party insiders who can back the candidate of their choosing, regardless of how their states vote.
