>> please welcome to the stage paul feeney. >> hello fellow democrats, i'm a
proud member of the brotherhood of electrical workers number 2222 in boston, massachusetts. i come from the movement, can i call you my brothers and sisters? in that case, my brothers and sisters, we're at a cross roads. in a matter of moments, we will enter a new phase in our party and chart a new course. as we turn the page, we must be reflective of the past year when
working people across the country joined with senator bern bernie sanders to reignite a political
revolution in the united states of america. brothers and sisters, bernie not only fought for people, he empowered people. to my brothers and sisters that have been a part of this historic campaign, i urge you to stay engaged, stay active, and stay fired up. we have shown this country that people powered politics can never be defeated. they say that movements are made up of a series of moments. my brothers and sisters, it's moments like the one we find
ourselves in right now here in philadelphia as we stand on the research of nominating our candidate for president. it is moments like the one we had last night when bernie signed filled this hall, and were held up by bernie and hillary supporters, too. we should be proud to share this moment together, and to build this movement together. bernie's campaign came together around a shared set of values and ideals. values and ideals like the fight for 15, the fight for unions, the fight against nick inequality. those are the central ennants of who we are as a party. but they're not more than words
on paper. unless we decide like bernie asked us to last night, to join together and support hillary clinton in november for president of the united states. my brothers and sisters, my fellow democratics, now is the time, now is the time to stand up, to rise up, and to send a message to the rest of america that our party is united, our movement is alive, and our revolution has just begun. with that, i proudly rise to second the nomination of senator bernie sanders of vermont as the democratic nominee for president of the united states. thank you.
tonight, my friends, we celebrate the progress we have made in this campaign, and we set a course for progress that we will make when we win in november. i am so proud of us. my friends, the millions of you who have volunteered, the millions who have donated, the millions who have stood at rallies across this great land and demanded changed.
optimism, for the future we all build together, i stand before you for the purposes of seconding the nomination of our friend and hero, senator bernie sanders. a beaming senator bernie sanders, very pleased by the nominating speeches. there you see a huge round of applause for the senator from vermont, jake. and the nominating speeches are

barbara mc -- mikulski from maryland. >> fellow democrats and sister democrats, and a special hello to the state of maryland. our nation was born here in philadelphia 240 years ago. our founding fathers gave us a great start, but it was the founding mothers who said do not forget the ladies or we will ferment our own revolution.
they started the job, but we're going to keep it going. now yes, we do break barriers. i broke a barrier when i became the first democratic woman elected in the senate in her own right, and the first to chair the powerful appropriations committee. so it is with a full heart that i'm here today as we nomination hillary clinton to be the first woman president. many of you have broken barriers. you were the first to go college, the first to start a business, maybe the first to be a citizen. you know you didn't do it for
yourself, you did it for others to have opportunities. that's what hillary wants to do. she wants to break barriers to opportunities so you won't have barriers. you can count on her. she will work for you she will fight for your day today needs. fighting for your macro issues and the macaroni and cheese issues. so you have opportunity for a good job and a good neighborhood with a good school, and your kids will have a really good future. you will have equal pay for equal work. so when you need it. so yes, it is about the new
jobs, but it is so much, she wants that job to light up your home, light up your community, light up your life, and she wants that little light in you just do shine. i know that hillary listens. the hillary that i work with is duty drive duty driven, unflaking, unflinching. for the wiem that have broken down barriers to others, i proudly parade hillary clinton's name and nomination to be the next president.
now john lewis, a member of the house of represents, continuing the theme of barrier breakers. john lewis will now have a nominating speech for hillary clinton. >> my beloved democrats, this are forces in america that want to take us backward. they want to undo 50 years of progress that this nation has made under democratic leadership.
we have come too far. we have made too much progress, and we are not going back. we are going forward! that is why we all must go to the polls in november and vote like we have never ever voted before. now eight years ago our party, the democratic party nominated and elected the first person of color to ever serve in the white house. not just for one term, but two terms. tonight on this night, we will shatter that glass ceiling
again. we are the party of tomorrow. and we will build a true democracy in america. i must tell you, i have known hillary clinton for many years. she is one of the most qualified candidates to ever run for president. she is a leader, sometimes against the win to break down barriers that divide us. she is smart. she is smart. she could have done anything with her life, but she decided long ago she didn't want to do just well. she wanted to do good.
so she has dedicated her life to public service and building a better america for all of our people, for no up with would be left out or left behind. sow tonight on behalf of our mothers trying to make ends meet, and our fathers who have not seen a pay increase in years, on behalf of the students trying to swim in a sea of debt. on behalf of all who suffered injustice, discrimination, who protesting for immigrants rights, gay rights, and more fairness in america. on behalf of all of the victims of gun violence, i give your leader, a brave leader, who can unite us as a nation and a people. a leader who can break down the

seven years later, my belief in america inspired me to raise my hand and swear to defend her ideals with my life. i joined the army as an ammunition specialist and gave the best of myself to a country that had given me so much. i returnrd from iraq to restore the faith of america's promise for everyone. tonight in the birthplace of our nation, we renew our commitment to democracy. with a historic step towards gender equality. reflected in broken shards of glass, and hillary herself, we can see the dreams of our

clyburn and before there was a board of education, there was griggs versus elliott. and home of one of the ten best cabinet secretaries of the 20th century, former secretary of education. >> south carolina is also home of the emanuel ame church which has remained strong from the darkest of times from 1822 to the charleston nine of 2015. >> home of coastal carolina, the national college world series champion. we south carolinians have lived by our state motto. while i breathe, i hope. and in that hopeful spirit, and because our democratic primaries
break glass ceilings, south carolina is proud to cast 13 votes for bernie sanders and 46 votes for the next president of the united states, hillary clinton. >> south carolina, you have cast 46 votes for secretary clinton and 13 votes for senator sanders. south dakota. you have 25 votes. how do you cast your votes? >> [ speaking in foreign language ] hello, family and friends. i extend my hand to you from my heart with good feelings in our beautiful language. >> from the great state of south dakota, land of mt. rushmore. land that brought us george mcgovern, who in 1972, the first
convention that practiced affirmative action exchanged the face of the democratic party delegates forever, half were women and all minorities were represented. we proudly cast our 25 votes, 10 for the senator, bernie sanders, who inspired us all. and 15 for the 45th president of the united states and the first one who will be called madam president, hillary rodham clinton. >> south dakota, you have cast 15 votes for secretary clinton and 10 votes for senator sanders. >> and history has just been made. hillary clinton gets more than
the 2382 she needs on get nomination. she will become the first woman in american history to lead a party into a presidential election. she now, jake, has done it. it is official. she's gotten more than 2382. even though people in this hall are waiting for more. >> it is a moment in american history. the first woman to head a ticket, a major party presidential ticket. a moment women have been trying on run for president in this country since 1872. and it is an historic moment. i don't know that the delegates on the floor quite realize it yet. but one of the things that's going on is that there is, if last notice was in many ways about letting bernie sanders have a night and letting progressives have a night, today is about uniting the party. bringing everyone together. letting the sanders delegates cast their votes for sanders. letting the hillary delegates cast their votes for her.
and i suspect the democrats have something in mind to bring this in mine to a big close. >> they're deliberately not showing the tally because they're all waiting for vermont, they're all waiting for something special to occur and senator sanders to do something to unify party. >> and it has been very moving in many ways. you had bernie sanders' brother come and talk about losing their parents young is that what a moment this would be for them. you had a delegate more than 100 years old. that means with she was born, women did not have the right to vote. much less be president of the united states. >> we saw bernie get so emotional when his brother was talking about how proud their parents would have been had they been here. they were jewish immigrants who came to brooklyn, new york. didn't have anything and raised a son who grew up to be a united states senator. and did very well in this presidential election. >> weaved talked the last couple
days about all the emotions that we've seen from sanders supporters. we need point out that there is a lot of emotion from hillary clinton supporters. especially for women like most most. the first female speaker of the house. >> this is texas right now. then utah. i'm anxious to see the vermont delegation, who makes their announcement. >> 72 votes for senator sanders. utah. utah, you have three votes. how do you cast your votes? >> madam secretary, the great state of utah, the industrious and beautiful bee hive state, adventures' first stop as home to five national parks, the greatest snow on earth, and the
number one state for volunteerism, casts 29 votes for senator bernie sanders. and eight votes for secretary hillary clinton. >> thank you very much. you have cast eight votes for secretary clinton and 29 votes for senator sanders. vermont. how do you cast your 26 votes? >> vermont passes. >> virgin islands. you have 12 -- >> vermont passes. clearly, vermont is going to be the last state to announce how it is voting and i suspect we're
going to be hearing directly from senator bernie sanders. >> that would be my suspicion as well. why would vermont pass unless they wanted to make some sort of point at the end? >> and bernie sanders wanted the roll call to have all the states announce their votes. that's why vermont wants to be the last. >> it is a way for the vermont, a way for the bernie sanders delegates to voice their preference for him and it is also been a well choreographed way for the democrats to display unity. at least so far. we thought there was the potential for demonstrations for sanders supporters. especially in the california delegation. that hasn't happened. the party has been remarkably unified. >> so smooth. almost an hour and a half since this roll call has been going on. and it is almost over. and you can only imagine what will happen at the very end, if in fact bernie sanders does what
we anticipate. announces vermont's votes and then does something even more to try to underscore unity. >> virginia. >> we know that sanders is in the hall, after all. i think this is all an educated guess as to what might happen. remember, eight years ago, there was an important moment when hillary clinton nominated barack obama. it allowed people to see her these as particularly support him even though they had such a contentious battle. >> i am looking at the vermont group. i don't know if bernie sanders is already there. maybe we'll get a shot of that vermont delegation. presumably, bernie sanders will be walking out there and he'll want to make, i suspect he will make a statement. in the meantime, let's go back to the roll call. >> home to our beloved first daughter and first lady, and
home to the next vice president of the united states, tim kaine. virginia casts 33 votes for senator sanders. and virginia casts 75 votes for the next president of the united states. >> here comes bernie sanders. vermont will be last. vermont will be last, clearly, bernie sanders is going to make a statement. not only to explain vermont's vote but also explaining to everybody here, 20,000 plus people in the wells fargo center but to the nation and the world where he stands and hopes the democratic party will be. >> it has been a contentious and fractious primary.
and he is, his speech last night was a very strong speech in favor of secretary clinton and we obviously see vermont passing earlier. and now about to give their delegates, bernie sanders, again about, to express strong support for his one time rival. >> it is such an emotional moment for him. and earlier when we saw his brother speak briefly, talk about his parents. you saw him start to cry. you saw the tears coming out of his eyes. >> he is not a marparticularly emotional guy. he is a passionate guy about his issues. obviously his brother larry invoking their brother who died young. let's watch. >> and let's not forget, eight years ago, it was hillary clinton who did something very similar at this democratic convention to promote the possibility the first
african-american would be elected president of the united states. now history is being made potentially. it could be the first woman president of the united states. we have three more states to go. let's listen in. >> and 42 votes, and 42 votes for the exceptional and ground breaking next president of the united states, secretary hillary rodham clinton! >> washington, you have cast 42 votes for secretary clinton and 74 votes for senator sanders. west virginia. west virginia, you have 37 votes. how do you cast your votes? >> madam secretary, almost heaven, west virginia, home of the most compassionate people in the world when disaster strikes
and proud to put people first. cast 19 votes for the next president of the united states, hillary rodham clinton. and 18 votes for senator bernie sanders. >> west virginia, you have cast 19 votes for secretary clinton and 18 votes for senator sanders. wisconsin. wisconsin, you have 96 votes. how do you cast your votes? >> madam secretary, i am senator tammy baldwin from the great state of wisconsin. and i am so proud to represent the badger state and our 11 sovereign tribes here tonight. wisconsin is a state where workers still make things from
ships, tools and paper to cheese, brats and beer. we are home to the bucks, the brewers, and america's team, the green bay packers. and we are home to future senator russ feingold. tonight we cast 49 votes for senator bernie sanders and we cast 47 votes for the next president of the united states, secretary hillary clinton. thank you very much. wisconsin. you cast 47 votes for secretary clinton and 49 votes for senator
sanders. wyoming. >> all right. wyoming will be the last state before vermont. let's listen in. >> how do you cast your votes? >> madam secretary, i am the chair woman of the wyoming democratic party. wyoming. the equality state and the home of many firsts. the first national park, the first national monument, the first state to guarantee women woman governor. today we are proud to be the last to cast our state votes. seven votes for senator bernie sanders and 11 votes for the next president of the united states, the first woman president of the united states, hillary rodham clinton. >> thank you very much, wyoming. you have cast 11 votes for secretary clinton, and seven votes for senator sanders.
and now to vermont. how do you cast your 26 votes? i'm dottie deem, chair of the democratic party, on behalf of the great state of vermont, a state that helped fight and win revolution that gave birth to our united states of america, the state that helped fight and win the political revolution of 2016 thanks to our senator bernie sanders! whose leaders denounced the dem goingry of joseph mckarthy and today whose leaders like howard dean, peter welch and our own senator leahy speak out against
the modern-day mccarthy donald trump, on behalf of the home state of senator bernie sanders who has changed the trajectory of this country in a way that will make the lives of working americans better for generations to come! >> vermont, casts our votes. vermont casts our votes, 22 votes for our beloved senator sanders. and four for the next president hillary clinton, it is now my honor to present our senator
bernie sanders. >> thank you. madam chair, i move that the convention suspend the procedural rules. i move that all votes, all votes cast by delegates be reflected in the official record, and i move that hillary clinton be selected as the nominee of the democratic party for president of the united states.
>> what an exciting moment for these democrats that have gathered here in cleveland. history has now been made. hillary clinton is the democratic nominee. the crowd here is so excited. i want to listen in. >> thank you, senator sanders. senator sanders has moved in the spirit of unity to suspend the rules -- to suspend the rules
and nominate hillary clinton by acclimation as the presidential candidate of the democratic party. >> is there a second? all in favor of the motion say aye. those no? the ayes have it! ♪ ♪ ♪ >> jake, a really important gesture by bernie sanders. bernie sanders trying his best to convince his supporters and there are many of them, he did remarkably well in the primaries to go ahead now and move forward
in the united democratic party against donald trump and this crowd really is feeling the excitement right now. >> it feels much more unified here than it did last night. it is a remarkable achievement. it has been hard fought, well choreographed, carefully negotiated, but the movement of having the delegates have their night last night, the sanders delegates, letting bernie sanders have his speech last night and allowing the delegates to voice their support for him which obviously climaxed with him asking for all the delegates to go for hillary clinton. a remarkable moment, and a very, very well choreographed display of unity and in a marked contrast to what we saw in cleveland when we had the roll call and ted cruz who came in second on the republican side, you didn't hear him do what bernie sanders has done here. >> no, but let us turn now to
what hillary clinton has achieved because this is an amazing moment in american history. a major party presidential nominee who is a woman, many, many people in the arena here very emotional. >> the convention rules of procedure, secretary clinton has been invited to make an acceptance speech. i have been asked to inform you that secretary clinton thanks you and will deliver her acceptance speech at the fourth session of the convention thursday night. >> it's official, she will accept this democratic presidential nomination to become the first woman in american history to lead a major party to the presidential election. this is a moment that a lot of people have been waiting for. terry mcauliffe, a good friend of the clintons, the governor of virginia, will now speak. ♪ ♪ ♪
>> hello, democrats! thank you! thank you! [ crowd chanting "terry" ] >> this is an extraordinary day. this is a day that will change the political history of our country. it is the end of one chapter and the beginning of another, and it's a day that i guarantee you will remember forever because you will be able to say i was there when we nominated hillary clinton to be the next president of the united states of america. >> and more importantly, when we made history, when we selected, and i am so proud to announce it for the first time, the first
woman nominee in american history to lead our party to the white house! when we selected a nominee who fought her whole life for greater justice, equality and the opportunity for every single american, when we selected a nominee who doesn't just talk about making america stronger around the world, she's the only candidate with a special plan to work with our allies and to fight isis all over the globe. my friends, hillary clinton is the nominee who is ready to stand up to the hatred and the fearmongering and send donald trump back to his bankrupt casinos where he belongs! of course, i would be remiss if
i did not praise hillary for her excellent judgment in selecting my friend and fellow virginian tim kaine to be the next vice president of the united states. >> and you can support that effort right now by going to hillaryclinton.com. now, folks, i've known hillary and her husband bill for more than half of my life. i love this woman. i still remember her playing mermaid in the pool with our youngest daughter sally for hours on family vacations. i was proud she was the first person to call and congratulate our oldest son jack when he began his career as an officer in the united states marine corps, and i
