Good news for the Hillary supporters!
Hillary Clinton continues to build on her delegate lead going into Tuesday night’s election contests in Mississippi and Michigan.
Mrs. Clinton has now 1,134 delegates after picking up a few more endorsements from superdelegates in Michigan, the party leaders who can support any candidate they wish. Sanders has 499.
Clinton’s number is roughly half the amount she needs to clinch the Democratic nomination for president. She’s been able to sustain her lead to date with superdelegate help as well as big wins in the South such as Louisiana.
