WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Massachusetts, picking up her first victory in rival Bernie Sanders' native New England.

Not including this win, Clinton picked up victories in six states, including Texas as well as the American Samoa, overtaking Sanders' victories in smaller states such as Vermont and Oklahoma.

Clinton held a solid delegate lead for the night even prior to her Massachusetts win, having won six of the 11 states at stake. She has won at least 377 delegates from the Super Tuesday contests; Sanders has gained at least 191.
