Pennsylvania (PA) PrimaryAfter multiple campaign stops throughout the state of Pennsylvania, Hillary Clinton has claimed victory in the Keystone State.

Secretary Clinton took the stage at the Pennsylvania Convention Center a little after 9pm in Philadelphia, walking in to the song ‘Eye of the Tiger’ by Survivor. Mrs. Clinton won 95 of the 189 delegates up for grabs. Besides winning Pennsylvania, Clinton also won delegates in Connecticut, Delaware, and Maryland. She still needs 232 delegates to secure the nomination.

The Clintons have a long history with Pennsylvania; President Bill Clinton won the presidential race in 1992 and 1996, and Hillary Clinton won Pennsylvania over President Obama in 2008 by 10 points.

Senator Bernie Sanders announced Wednesday he plans to lay off hundreds of campaign workers after another night of disappointing losses. Despite layoffs, Sanders claims he will remain i the race. The Senator only beat the former Secretary in Rhode Island, earning 55% of the vote. Sanders earned 67 delegates from Pennsylvania’s Primary.

On the Republican ticket, Donald Trump took victories in all five states Tuesday, claiming 109 delegates. The real estate mogul still needs 283 delegates to claim the Republican nomination.
