US Election: Clinton Secures Democratic Nomination For President


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton secured the Democratic Party’s 2016 nomination for the White House on Tuesday.

She becomes the first woman to head the ticket of a major party in U.S. history.

Delegates from South Dakota gave Clinton 15 votes, ensuring that she had more than the 2,383 votes needed to win the nomination during a state-by-state roll call at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.

After a tough battle with Democratic rival U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton is now the party’s standard-bearer against Republican nominee Donald Trump in the November 8 election.

Supporters of Clinton say her Washington credentials show she has the experience needed for the White House during troubled times as the United States tries to speed up its economic recovery and faces security challenges abroad.
