Hillary Clinton has made history as the first female nominee of a major party for president.
It’s official: Hillary is in, Bernie is out.
But it didn’t start that way at the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday afternoon.
The Democratic National Convention roll call came and went within hours, first with Sen. Bernie Sanders throwing his name back in the pot (honestly, based on the nonstop chanting of his name in and surrounding the arena, did he even have a choice?).
The majority of states favored Clinton by either casting more votes for her or cheering her on as “the first woman president.”
By the end of the voting process, it seemed that reaching out for Sanders wasn’t going to make a difference either way.
Sanders approached the podium, saying, “I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States.”
Clinton has made history as the first female nominee of a major party for president. She will formally accept the nomination Thursday night.
