“I am going to take a moment to fully absorb the history we’ve made here.” – @HillaryClinton on 6/7/2016
Watch CSPAN Live Coverage of this historic night! NWPC President Donna Lent is live in Brooklyn, NY celebrating with Hillary supporters from around the country (and around the world!)
From NYTimes 6/7/2016:
“Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night with a crushing victory in the New Jersey primary.
Delivering an evocative speech woven with references to trailblazing women, Mrs. Clinton pledged to build on the achievements of pioneers like the 19th-century leaders at Seneca Falls, N.Y., who began the fight for women’s rights in America.
She took the stage with her hands clasped over her heart in gratitude, threw her arms open in joy and savored a long moment as a jubilant crowd waved American flags and chanted “Hillary.” “Tonight caps an amazing journey — a long, long journey,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We all owe so much to those who came before, and tonight belongs to all of you.”
