Delegates will do a roll call vote to determine the Democratic presidential nominee. Loud support for Bernie Sanders is expected, as he did not release his delegates prior to the convention. Hillary Clinton will win the nomination, which is expected when Virginia and its governor Terry McAuliffe make the call to put Clinton over the top.

Despite please from Bernie Sanders and Michelle Obama, Sanders supporters are split on backing Clinton in November. The release of hacked DNC emails fueled fire because of harsh and agitated comments DNC staffers wrote about Sanders. Many backing the Sanders campaign felt the party had been conspiring against Sanders before the hack occurred.

Speakers for night two of the DNC include headliner former President Bill Clinton, Ryan Moore, who will speak on behalf of Clinton’s healthcare efforts. Lauren Manning, a catastrophically wounded survivor of 9-11; Joe Sweeney, an NYPD detective who was at the scene of Ground Zero on 9-11; Mothers of the Movement, an anti-police brutality group.
