Clinton records early win in Washington, Will Sanders give up?

Hillary Clinton quickly squashed Bernie Sanders' early lead in the Washington, D.C. primary, with the race being called for the presumptive Democratic nominee less than an hour after polls closed.

Once the early votes were tabulated from the District of Columbia, the former secretary of state was besting the Vermont senator 79 percent to 21 percent.

The quick win for Clinton was expected, as the capital city's demographics are ripe for her to win big.

The D.C. primary was Sanders' last chance to pick up a fresh victory, while Clinton has already been heralded as the presumptive Democratic nominee after winning the popular vote in the party primary and a majority of pledged delegates last Tuesday.

President Obama formally endorsed her in a video released last Thursday after taking a meeting with Sanders at the White House. Sanders, so far, has refused to quit the race. He will not concede to Clinton tonight, his campaign said earlier today, even though there's no plausible path to the Democratic nomination. Source: Daily MailFacebooktwittergoogle_plus
