On the second night of the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton became the first woman to receive a nomination from a major party for president.

The moment came at the end of a roll-call vote with Senator and challenger Bernie Sanders requesting the party select the former Secretary of State as their candidate.

Murray State history professor and Kentucky delegate Dr. Brian Clardy is at the DNC in Philadelphia and says the nomination was a powerful moment.

Democratic Party officials are still trying to unify support behind presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as supporters of former candidate Bernie Standers continue to protest her nomination.

The two candidates nearly split Kentucky’s share of 55 pledged delegates — Sanders took 27 and Clinton took 28. Clinton won all five of Kentucky’s unpledged “super” delegates.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes portrayed Donald Trump as "an unsteady, unqualified bully" while offering insights about Hillary Clinton's personal side in a speech Tuesday afternoon at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. 

The Democratic National Convention made history Tuesday evening: Amid applause, shouts, cheers and in some cases tears, the delegates on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia nominated Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.

Clinton is now the first female presidential candidate of a major American party.

The first night of the Democratic National Convention was headlined by high profile members of the party from First Lady Michelle Obama, Clinton rival Bernie Sanders and rising stars Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren. But perhaps most notable from last night were the vocal Sanders supporters. Western Kentucky delegate Brian Clardy spoke with Matt Markgraf this morning about his take on Sanders supporters in the Kentucky delegation and last night's speakers.
