Democrats converge on Philadelphia for Clinton nomination
US Democrats converge on the City of Brotherly Love to elevate Hillary Clinton this week as the party’s nominee who will battle Republican Donald Trump in 2016’s presidential election.
The Democratic National Convention kicks off today in Philadelphia with the party more unified than the Republicans, whose fissures were laid bare this week as they confirmed brash billionaire Trump as their flagbearer. But frustrations are nevertheless swirling as delegates bicker about the Democratic nominating process and new hiccups over Clinton camp emails.
“Next [this] week in Philadelphia we will offer a very different vision for our country,” she pledged. “One that is about building bridges, not walls, embracing the diversity that makes our country great.”
