Though the Associated Press called the Democratic primary in her favor on Monday night, Hillary Clinton’s campaign was adamant to press ahead into Tuesday contests. The former Secretary of State won in New Jersey, South Dakota, New Mexico and the night’s biggest battleground—California.
Clinton’s new delegate count (including superdelegates) makes her the presumptive nominee heading into the July convention. As the first woman to reach that milestone in any political party, Clinton inspired ordinary Americans and celebrities alike to take in the historic moment.
Here’s what John Legend, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera and more had to say about Hillary’s big victory:
Congratulations to @HillaryClinton on her historic win!—
