WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination, the first woman to be the nominee of a major party, though she will not call herself the presumptive nominee until California, New Jersey and four other states vote on Tuesday.

Clinton called her impending clinch  a “historic, unprecedented moment.”

Clinton returns to her hometown Chicago on June 27, where she will be the keynote speaker at the 50th annual Rainbow PUSH Coalition convention at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. Clinton will appear at the International Women’s Luncheon at the convention.

AP made the call based on its ongoing polling of superdelegates – party honchos who are automatically delegates to the Philadelphia convention – and the final results of weekend voting.
