Democrats officially nominate Biden for president

Democrats officially nominated former Vice President Joe Biden to be their presidential nominee on Tuesday night, setting up an election battle against President Trump in November.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you,” Biden said in brief remarks following the vote. His wife, Jill Biden, and several grandchildren joined him for the moment.

Biden’s nomination was expected, and there was no drama as the roll call of votes unfolded at the Democratic National Convention, which is taking place as a virtual event because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-Del.) both gave speeches on behalf of Biden, as did Jacquelyn Brittany, a New York Times security guard who had a viral moment with Biden in an elevator.
