The Voting Is Over; Let the Campaign Begin 40 MIN, 36 SEC

Hillary Clinton has all the delegates needed to stake her claim as the first woman nominee of a major political party. But Bernie Sanders will carry on. Despite accusing Donald Trump of "textbook" racism, House Speaker Paul Ryan is reportedly telling colleagues to continue backing their nominee. As for Trump, he did stick to a speech on a once-scorned teleprompter, but he was anything but contrite, and many Republicans are looking for cover. The bottom line? Both presumptive nominees have made clear that months of negative campaigning are just getting started.

Amy Parnes, who has covered the White House since 2008, is now covering this year's campaign for The Hill.
