Hillary Clinton is now the presumptive Democratic nominee in the race to the White House, pending all those super delegates she’s accumulated before they vote at the convention, and she’s become the first woman in US history to do so.

“Tonight’s victory is not about one person; it belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible,” Clinton said in Brooklyn late Tuesday night. “Tonight belongs to all of you.”

Newspapers across the states dedicated their front pages to Clinton for the historic achievement.
