Clinton wins in California, inches closer to democratic nomination

Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night after decisive victories in the New Jersey and New Mexico primaries, and quickly appealed to supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont to unite with her against Donald J. Trump.

With the 14-month Democratic race nearing a close, Mrs. Clinton savored the biggest night of her extraordinary journey from lawyer, wife and first lady to senator, secretary of state and, now, the first woman to win a major party’s nomination. At a rally in Brooklyn, she took the stage with her hands clasped over her heart in gratitude, then threw open her arms in joy and savored a long moment as a jubilant crowd waved American flags and chanted “Hillary.”

But Mr. Sanders refused to yield, insisting that he would continue his campaign and barely acknowledging her achievement.

 Sen. Bernie Sanders vowed to continue his fight for the Democratic nomination all the way to the convention.

“We are going to fight hard to win the primary in Washington, D.C., and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to Philadelphia,” Sanders told the crowd at a hangar in the Santa Monica Airport, which cheered wildly. “Thank you all! The struggle continues!”

However in a recent report,  Bernie Sanders was reported to have won the presidential primary in Montana

Brown) More Pasadena (United States) (AFP) - Colombia became the first side to reach the quarter-finals of the Copa America Centenario, while the United States thumped Costa Rica 4-0 to get their campaign back on track. Goals from AC Milan's Carlos Bacca and Real Madrid star James Rodriguez on Tuesday secured a 2-1 win for Colombia over Paraguay in front of a vocal crowd at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California. Victor Ayala gave Paraguay hope after pulling a goal back on 71 minutes but Colombia held on for three points which means they are assured of a top two finish in Group A and a place in the last eight. Colombia need only to draw against Costa Rica on Saturday to assure themselves of first place, leaving them a potentially easier quarter-final against the runner-up from Group B, which contains Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti and Peru. In Tuesday's other game, US striker Clint Dempsey scored his 50th international goal as the host nation bounced back from their 2-0 loss to Colombia on Friday with a convincing rout of Costa Rica. Dempsey opened the scoring from the penalty spot after nine minutes before Jermaine Jones and Bobby Wood struck just before half-time to effectively settle the contest. Substitute Graham Zusi added a fourth goal three minutes from time, which could prove crucial if goal difference comes into play.   Big Boss, Stephen Keshi, passes on at 54 Keshi Stephen Keshi, has died.
