Hillary Clinton stands on the cusp of having enough delegates to claim the Democratic presidential nomination, having overwhelmed Bernie Sanders in a pair of weekend elections in the Caribbean.Clinton won all seven delegates available in the U.S. Virgin Islands and at least 33 of the 60 delegates available in Puerto Rico.Clinton now has 1,809 pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses; Sanders has 1,520 .When including superdelegates, the party insiders who can vote for the candidate of their choice at the party's summer convention, Clinton's lead over Sanders is substantial: 2,357 to 1,566 .Both Clinton and Sanders spent Sunday in California, the biggest prize among the six states voting on Tuesday.Like Clinton, Sanders made little mention of the outcome in Puerto Rico's primary.Both Sanders and Clinton have pledged to help as the island's government tries to restructure $70 billion worth of public debt that the governor has said is unpayable.
