However, Clinton's opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, vowed to stay in the race, saying it's not over until the party's convention in July.  

Clinton won four of the six Democratic primaries held on Tuesday. She has 2,755 delegates, including superdelegates. Sanders has 1,852 delegates with superdelegates. 

New York businessman Donald Trump secured the Republican presidential nomination last week, and on Tuesday he won all five of the Republican primaries.  He has 1,536 GOP delegates pledged to support him at the party's convention this summer.
