Hillary Clinton has secured a majority of delegates to the Democratic National Convention, NBC News projects, meaning the former secretary of state is now the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party on Monday.

To win the nomination, a candidate must secure a majority of all delegates, or 2,383. But 15 percent of the total delegate pool is made up of superdelegates current and former elected officials and party activists who aren't bound to vote for the candidate selected by voters in their home state's primary.

Many but not all of the Democratic superdelegates have publicly declared their support for either Clinton or her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Clinton's win in the Puerto Rico primary where 60 unpledged delegates were at stake pushed her total, including hundreds of superdelegates, beyond 2,383.

Clinton was widely expected to reach the 2,383 threshold on Tuesday, when six states hold their nominating contests on one of the final primary nights of the race.
