Hillary Clinton Primary Night Event In Miami

After a grueling campaign, Hillary Clinton made history Tuesday night by clinching the Democratic party nomination for president.

The news was met with enthusiastic applause following a 90-minute roll call vote, according to the Los Angeles Times. It was a far cry from the first night of the Democratic National Convention, where Clinton was booed after exemption from charges of an email scandal. She also received vehement opposition from supporters of her former rival, Bernie Sanders.

But rousing speeches from Sanders, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Senator Elizabeth Warren Monday no doubt helped unify the party behind Clinton, or, at the very least, against Donald Trump.

Michelle said Monday:

“I am here tonight because I know that that is the kind of president that Hillary Clinton will be, and that’s why in this election, I’m with her. Because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters, and all our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.”

Sanders, who was met with a thunderous, three-minute applause Monday, conceded his own candidacy weeks ago and threw his support behind Clinton enthusiastically.

“It is easy to boo, but it’s harder to look your kids in the face who would be living under Donald Trump,” Sanders told California delegates at a surprise breakfast Tuesday. “Trump is the worst candidate for president in the modern history of this country.”

The final roll call tallies were 2838 for Clinton, 1843 for Sanders and 55 abstentions, according to ABC News.
