Hillary Clinton is heading into the last “Super Tuesday” with some extra momentum.

Clinton is making history, qualifying as the first woman to lead a major political party.

Clinton received fresh commitments from super delegates on Monday, pushing her further ahead.

On Tuesday, the polls open for multiple state nominating contests including the big prize states of California and New Jersey.

Clinton acknowledged her historic moment at a rally on Monday but also pointed out that the race is not over, “according to the news we are in the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment, but we still have work to do, don’t we?”

Her rival for the nomination, Bernie Sanders, is not giving up yet. Sanders argued that super delegates should not be counted until the party convention.

Polls in New Jersey give Clinton a substantial lead over sanders.

In California, both candidates are neck-and-neck.
