BREAKING: Hillary Clinton becomes Democratic nominee; 1st woman to secure a major party's presidential nomination. https://t.co/RsmAzvJCur— ABC News (@ABC) July 26, 2016
The crowd roars at the 2016 Democratic National Convention as Hillary Clinton is officially named the first woman to lead a major political party's presidential ticket.
It's important to note Sen. Bernie Sanders' class act move at the end of the roll call.
As I understand it, the tally of votes wasn't shown in the convention hall. When it came time for Sanders' state of Vermont, they passed. Going last, Sanders took the microphone that it would be him, like Hillary Clinton eight years ago, that called for a suspension of the rules and to proclaim Hillary the nominee by acclamation.
Thrilling moment. Watch below.
And the crowd goes wild!
