Hillary Clinton Wins DC Democratic Primary

Hillary Clinton is the projected winner of Tuesday night’s Democratic primary in Washington D.C. with about 41 percent of the vote tallied, according to the Associated Press and CNN.

Clinton garnered 78.8 percent of the vote to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 21 percent in the final contest of the year.

Clinton became the party’s presumptive nominee last week.

Sanders has said he would stay in the race until the party’s summer convention. His campaign confirmed to TPM on Tuesday the senator plans to hold a live streamed talk with supporters to discuss the future of the campaign on Thursday night.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
