Hillary Clinton became the first woman to carry the honor for a chance to represent the United States for at least the next eight years.
It wasn’t easy as supporters of Bernie Sanders continued to fight for the candidate they have been riding for months, especially after leaked e-mails showed that members of the DNC have been pushing to make the former first lady the nominee. At the end of the roll call Sanders officially announced his vote to nominate Clinton for president.
Clinton has experience as a former United States senator from New York, and former Secretary of State.
