ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Voters went to the polls for the Democratic and Republican primaries in New Jersey, Tuesday (June 7). Hillary Clinton has captured enough delegates to secure the Democratic presidential nomination, according to tallies by two U.S. media outlets, as she and rival Bernie Sanders faced off on Tuesday in contests in six states- including New Jersey and California. Under Democratic National Committee rules, most delegates to the party's July 25-28 convention are awarded by popular votes in state-by-state elections. But the delegate count also includes "superdelegates" - party leaders and elected senators, members of Congress and governors - who can change their mind at any time. For that reason, the DNC has echoed the Sanders campaign, saying the superdelegates should not be counted until they actually vote at the Philadelphia convention.
