PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Unmoved by Bernie Sanders' plea for party unity behind Hillary Clinton, thousands of Sanders supporters chanting "Bernie or bust!" took to the streets under the hot sun Tuesday for another round of protests on Day 2 of the Democratic convention.
By John Whitesides and Alana Wise PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Democrats began the formal process of nominating their White House candidate on Tuesday in a vote that will end with Hillary Clinton becoming the first woman presidential nominee of a major party in U.S. history. Delegates chanted "Hillary, Hillary," as U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski put Clinton's name forward for a state-by-state roll call at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.
