Democratic Party officially nominates Hillary Clinton as first female candidate

Hillary Clinton has become the first woman in history to win the White House nomination of a major US political party, securing the backing of a majority of Democrats at a convention in Philadelphia.

The former first lady, senator and secretary of state took a monumental step on her quest to become American’s first woman president by besting party challenger Bernie Sanders.

In a symbolic show of party unity, Mr Sanders told the chairwoman from the convention floor that Mrs Clinton should be selected as the party’s nominee during a state-by-state roll call at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.
