Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is projected to win the Virgin Islands caucuses.
 
Clinton’s win does little to pad her delegate lead over Bernie Sanders, as the state offers only 7 pledged delegates.
 
{mosads}But the victory is a small boost to her pivot toward taking on presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
 
Clinton is comfortably ahead of Sanders in the delegate count but is facing negative pushback for not being able to put Sanders away.
 
The delegate math supports Clinton’s confidence, as Sanders trails her by more than 200 pledged delegates and by about 500 superdelegates.
 
As voters in the Virgin Islands were casting their ballots, Clinton was only 67 delegates shy of the 2,383 needed to win the nomination, according to the Associated Press.
 
The former secretary of State is already pivoting to Trump, attacking the billionaire at every turn.
