Congrats to Hillary Clinton! Democrats formally nominated her for president on Tuesday, making her the first female candidate to represent a major American political party.

Mrs. Clinton officially became the party’s standard-bearer in a roll-call vote of delegates on the floor of the convention. During the voting, Senator Bernie Sanders, who rallied millions of voters to his side in his battle against Mrs. Clinton, could be seen tearing up with his wife, Jane, sitting by his side.

The voting ended with Sanders moving to make the Clinton nomination unanimous by acclamation.
