    June 7, Washington: 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.

    The AP count puts Clinton on 2,383 - the number needed to make her the presumptive nominee.

    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.

    She will become the first female nominee for a major US political party.

    But rival Bernie Sanders said Clinton had not won as she was dependent on superdelegates who could not vote until July's party convention.

    Clinton reached the threshold with a big win in Puerto Rico and a burst of last-minute support from superdelegates, AP said.
