Hillary Clinton held off Bernie Sanders to win the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary Tuesday night.

The former secretary of state only led Sanders by 16 points when the polls opened, yet her ___ point victory guarantees her a sizable percentage of Pennsylvania’s 189 delegates.

Entering Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton held a 754 delegate lead over Sanders, thanks in large part to her 518 pledged superdelegates. Clinton still needs 437 to claim the nomination.

Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Rhode Island also held primaries on Tuesday.
