The 2016 presidential primary season is over. And in the last race of the year, it's a win for Hillary Clinton. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee capped her primary campaign on Tuesday with a win over Bernie Sanders in the Washington, DC, primary, reports AP. As elections officials started to count votes in the nation's capital, Clinton and Sanders were meeting at a hotel in the city. Given that Sanders has yet to concede, the race is not quite over, notes Politico.

Clinton said earlier Tuesday in an interview with Telemundo that she was very much "looking forward to having his support in this campaign, because Donald Trump poses a serious threat to our nation." The presumptive GOP nominee wrapped up his primary effort last Tuesday, when the final Republican primary elections were held in five states. (More Hillary Clinton 2016 stories.)
