Hillary Clinton has won the final Democratic primary in Washington, D.C. Clinton met with rival Bernie Sanders for nearly two hours Tuesday night. In statements afterwards, the campaigns said they had agreed to work together on a “progressive agenda” for the Democratic Party platform in July. Sanders had issued a series of demands ahead of the meeting, including an end to the superdelegate system, the removal of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the most progressive Democratic platform in the party’s history. Sanders is expected to address his supporters by video message Thursday night.
Meanwhile Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s campaign has announced she has the support of 203 delegates, enough to secure the nomination at the party’s convention in August. Stein says a recent poll shows her with 5% support nationally. She has called for opening up the upcoming presidential debates to include third-party candidates.
