History has been made in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as Hillary Clinton is now the first female presidential nominee with the U.S. Democratic National party.
It was the delegates in South Dakota that pushed the nomination forward after they gave her the numbers she needed to clinch. This was Clinton’s second effort after her loss to current U.S. President Barack Obama in 2008.
Voting came to an end with a significant timing with the delegation from Bernie Sanders’s home state of Vermont giving Clinton the unanimous nomination by ovation.
More history is expected to be made at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night when former U.S. President Bill Clinton becomes the first to endorse a spouse with the presidential nomination.
