Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Declared Winners in New Jersey Primary


 Donald Trump was declared an early winner of Tuesday's New Jersey primary, the first of numerous competitions occurring throughout the night.

Hillary Clinton has a lead over Bernie Sanders in New Jersey, but it is still too close to call.

The results come in only a day after the Associated Press declared Clinton the presumptive Democratic nominee after securing enough delegates with 1,812 pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses, and the support of 571 superdelegates.

California, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana also held primaries on Tuesday, with results yet to be announced.

Bernie Sanders' supporters argued this week that declaring Clinton the presumptive nominee was in effect stifling voter turnout and calling the election before it was over, as the party's superdelegates do not officially cast their ballots until July. Clinton supporters also worried that the announcement might affect voter turnout, however, with Democrats assuming she had already won.

Sanders' campaign responded to AP's report about Clinton as the presumptive nominee on Monday night, with a statement that read, "It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgment, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee's clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer."
