Live blog: Democratic National Convention 2016 (7/28/16), events, speakers, protests, Clinton

Hillary Clinton will formally accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president Thursday in Philadelphia.

Watch video

PHILADELPHIA — Hillary Clinton will formally accept the Democratic nomination for president Thursday, becoming the first woman to lead the ticket for a major party.

Her speech will come a day after President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden gave rousing addresses to the Democratic National Convention, vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine delivered a scathing attack on Republican Donald Trump, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent, called Clinton the sane and competent choice.

The fourth and final day of the convention kicks off a 4 p.m. 

Clinton will be introduced by her daughter, Chelsea Clinton. But before either speaks in Philadelphia, convention-goers will hear from a $15 an hour minimum wage advocate, Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin, Retired Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, who commanded U.S. forces in Afghanistan, LGBT activist Sarah McBride and Khizr Khan, whose son was one of 14 American Muslims killed serving in the U.S. Armed Forces after 9/11.

Political analysts say speakers over the past three days have made an effort to humanize Clinton, who has struggled to paint a fuller picture of herself, and that Chelsea clinton and the candidate will likely seek to make up ground there, too.

The Democrats say they intend to use what is essentially a four-day commercial to present an optimistic, united front, and offer a stark contrast to last week’s Republican National Convention. Trump and party leaders cast Clinton as corrupt and a retread of the Obama presidency that has made the country and world less safe from terrorism.
