Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primaries in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. 

The Democratic presidential front-runner, Hillary Clinton, clinched the primary in Puerto Rico Sunday and the Virgin Islands on Saturday, reports the Associated Press.

Clinton is 30 delegates away from the 2,383 needed to secure the nomination, according to AP.

There were only seven pledged delegates in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and they are all supporting Clinton. Senator Clinton has secured 1,807 pledged delegates from primaries and caucuses. Senator Sanders has 1,516, reports AP. If superdelates are included in the count, Clinton has a lead over Sanders: 2,355 to 1,562.

Both Senators are preparing for primaries June 7 in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota; North Dakota holds a caucus on the same day. Washington D.C.'s June 14 primary will be the final one before the Democratic Convention that takes place in July.

Senator Clinton published an op-ed Friday celebrating the progress of LGBT rights in the U.S.
