After a hard fought primary and four days of a convention that has been alternately contentious and adulatory, Hillary Clinton will finally formally accept her party’s nomination and become the first woman candidate of a major party for President of the United States tonight. For her supporters and delegates, it’s a moment that’s been a long time coming. We spoke to a few of them on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center Thursday afternoon to find out what this historic night means to them.
