Democrats formally nominate Clinton for president 

The Democratic Party officially nominated Hillary Clinton for president on Tuesday.

Clinton secured the required 2,383 delegates needed to win the nomination after South Dakota cast its 15 delegates for the former Secretary of State.  

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders cheered loudly when votes were cast for Sanders but they did not interrupt the proceedings. 

While the outcome of the primaries had been know for weeks, Democrats feared that Sanders supporters might boo Clinton during the roll call vote. 

Clinton will formally accept the nomination on Thursday night.

The Democrats have to work to unify the party and win over disinfranchised Sanders supporters. 

While the convention had a rocky start on Monday, the second day went smoothly.
