PHILADELPHIA /Pennsylvania/, July 27. /TASS/. The US Democratic Party has formally nominated Hillary Clinton its candidate for the November presidential election. The decision was taken at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday.
The former US secretary of state thus became the first woman to be one of the major political party’s presidential nominee in 240 years. She is expected to give formal consent to represent the Democrats in the forthcoming presidential election at the party convention in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Democrats hope that the party will be able to overcome the rift within the party within the remaining several months before the election. Clinton’s nomination was preceded by a tough battle with her Democratic rival Senator Bernie Sanders. On Monday the most active delegates at the convention supporting Sanders actually attempted to disrupt the opening ceremony chanting his name and shouting Lock Her Up referring to Hillary Clinton.
The intra-party disagreements were exacerbated by leaking Democratic National Committee correspondence ahead of the convention. These E-mails were released on WikiLeaks’ website and indicate that Democratic Party representatives were actively searching for ways to support Clinton during the primaries instead of remaining neutral, while trying to discredit her rival in the nomination, Bernie Sanders.
Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, earlier said that hackers who may have ties to Russia are allegedly assisting her rival in the presidential race, Donald Trump. Moscow strongly rejected these allegations.
