Real-time primary updates: Hillary Clinton wins California primary, AP projects

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he plans to stay in the race for the Democratic nomination for president.

Voters went the polls Tuesday in six states on the Democratic side, five on the Republican side, to vote in the second-to-last round of the presidential primary season. 

Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primaries in New Jersey,  New Mexico and South Dakota. Sanders took North Dakota and Montana. California voters were still being counted at 2 a.m. ET. 

Clinton spoke  in New York basking in the fact she made history as the first woman ever winning a major party's presidential nomination. Donald Trump also spoke in New York Tuesday in an effort to bring together an increasingly fractured Republican party.
