Hillary Clinton won Tuesday’s California primary — a victory that will only increase pressure on Bernie Sanders to concede that he has lost the race.

Clinton was on track to win the Democratic nomination with or without California. She has enough votes, pledged delegates, and superdelegates to coast to the nomination in Philadelphia this July, and declared victory after the New Jersey primary last night.

Still, California is the exclamation point Clinton wanted to make her nomination clear beyond a doubt. Her win in the state will bolster the argument that she won the race as the popular Democratic candidate — and make it harder for Sanders to contest the outcome all the way to Philadelphia.
