Large scale media outlets such as NBC and ABC are reporting that Clinton now has enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination, however Sanders’ reportedly said in a statement, “Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then.”
