Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has again stolen the show with huge, magnanimous gesture after the roll call had already reached a considerable showing for the Sanders side.
With Clinton having reached and surpassed the point where her nomination was already secured with 2,845 votes, Sanders had also made a very healthy showing with 1,865 votes as well without the rest of the states having yet been counted.
After the Vermont delegation announced it was giving 22 of its votes to Sanders, and four to the “future president, Hillary Clinton,” Bernie Sanders stepped up to the microphone.
“Madame Chairwoman, I move that the convention suspend the rules and that all votes cast be set aside and Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee for president of the United States.”
Total pandemonium in the hall.
After a hug and a kiss from people in the Vermont delegation, Sanders left the hall, as Hillary Clinton was quickly nominated and confirmed as the party’s nominee for president.
