Bill Clinton: "On April 7, we also won in Kansas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. On April 9, Paul Tsongas announced that he would not reenter the race. The fight for the nomination was effectively over."

When Was the 1992 Presidential Race Over?

Despite Sen. Hillary Clinton's insistence that her husband didn't clinch the Democratic presidential nomination until June 1992, Bill Clinton had a very different recollection in his own memoir, My Life.

He writes: "On April 7, we also won in Kansas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. On April 9, Paul Tsongas announced that he would not reenter the race. The fight for the nomination was effectively over."

Check Point
The Trouble With June 1992 as a Case for Pressing On

By JIM RUTENBERG
Published: May 27, 2008

.......................

The news medias attention focused on Mrs. Clintons invocation of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy after the California primary in June 1968. But she also cited the 1992 contest that ended with Bill Clintons nomination.

My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary, Mrs. Clinton told the papers editorial board, somewhere in the middle of June.

But for weeks before that June 2 contest, few doubted that Mr. Clinton would be the partys nominee, including those involved with the campaign of his remaining challenger, former Gov. Jerry Brown of California.

Even if it wasnt technically finished, it was clear to everybody involved that it was over well before June, Steve McMahon, a media strategist for Mr. Brown in the 1992 race, said Monday in an interview.
