WASHINGTON — Even before taking the stage to thank her supporters Tuesday, Hillary Clinton is on Twitter celebrating a milestone as she comes closer than any woman has ever come to being the presidential nominee of a major political party.
“We made history tonight,” Clinton said in one Tweet, promoting a free magnet bearing her image which reads, “June 7, 2016: History made.”

Another Tweet touts, “Tonight, we can say with pride that, in America, there is no barrier too great and no ceiling too high to break.”
The Associated Press declared Clinton the presumptive nominee on the eve of Tuesday’s election in half a dozen states, but her rival Bernie Sanders has vowed to fight on until all the superdelegates are allocated. Clinton leads Sanders both in pledged delegates and superdelegates.
