Sanders asks for roll call end, and Clinton wins nominationSubmitted: 07/26/2016
PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination after rival Bernie Sanders asked delegates at the party's national convention to nominate her by acclamation.

It was a dramatic end to the roll call of states.

Sanders told the convention that he wanted the procedural rules to be suspended and that Clinton be selected as the party's nominee.

That's what happened, and that's how Clinton was declared the nominee.
