Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton

The Democratic National Convention has just made history, nominating former First Lady, former U.S. Sen. and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president of the United States of America. Fifteen votes from South Dakota put her over the top.

Clinton is the first woman to be nominated for president by a major political party.

The count ended with Sen. Bernie Sanders moving to suspend the rules and nominate Hillary Clinton by acclamation as the Democratic candidate for president. Final delegate count (not counting super delegates) is  Clinton, 2,842; Sanders, 1,865, with 56 delegates not voting. Go here to see how the final delegate count played out.
