Hillary Clinton has officially won the California primary.

The results came in at 3:13 a.m. PT, hours after Clinton delivered a historic victory speech.

According to the Associated Press, Clinton secured 56 percent of the vote, which results in 257 delegates, compared to Bernie Sanders, who won 43.1 percent of the vote and picked up 188 delegates.

Clinton won four of the six state contests Tuesday, including New Jersey, which offered the most delegates behind California. With each win she made it less likely that Bernie Sanders could finagle a comeback.

“Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win,” Clinton said during her speech. “This campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings, no limits on any of us. This is our moment to come together.”

Clinton had already secured the delegates needed for the nomination before Tuesday’s contests, according to an Associated Press. Meanwhile, Sanders doesn’t appear to be ready to drop out. At least, not publicly.

“The struggle continues,” Sanders told supporters last night.
