An Associated Press count Monday found that Democrat Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to secure her party's nomination. But opponent Bernie Sanders is still pressing ahead and urging voters for their support. 

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has already sewed up the number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination.

The state's 2.6 million unaffiliated voters could declare a party and vote in the primary. But they will then be registered under that party's affiliation.
