"We think we're going to come out of Tuesday night with the delegates we need for her to be the first woman nominee on a major-party ticket in the United States," Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, said on "Fox News Sunday."


"So we're looking forward to that."

Podesta touted Clinton's lead over Sanders, saying it is the Vermont senator's decision about whether or not to stay in the race until the Democratic National Convention in late July. But he emphasized that Clinton will have the delegates necessary to be the Democratic nominee.

He said Clinton's campaign will do everything it can to reach out and appeal to Sanders supporters.

"And we hope that he will join us. He's been out there saying that he wants to work seven days a week to stop Donald Trump, and we hope that starting as soon as possible, that he will go ahead and fulfill that commitment and work with us."

Podesta also said the general election is "just coming into focus," brushing off poll numbers that show the race between Trump and Clinton tightening.

"He has consolidated Republicans and that's led to something of a tightening of the polls," he said.

"But this has really just begun."
