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.
The Democratic National Convention has begun in Philadelphia amid turmoil as DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to step down from her position and Bernie Sanders supporters protested what they called unfair treatment for their candidate.
The Democratic National Convention is getting underway this week in Philadelphia, where Hillary Clinton is expected to formally accept the party nomination. Murray State history professor Dr. Brian Clardy is a delegate from Calloway County. Matt Markgraf checked in with Clardy this morning from the convention.
