Hillary Clinton made history Thursday evening during the national convention in Philadelphia as she accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

The first woman to be chosen to run for the highest office in the land by a major party in the United States said, “Today, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union: The first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President,” Clinton said. “Standing here as my mother’s daughter’s’ and my daughter’s mother, I’m so happy this day has come … happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too, because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone … when there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.”

Clinton’s vice presidential running mate is Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine. Clinton and Kaine are running against Republican Donald Trump and his vice presidential running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. The General Election for president of the United States is Tuesday. Nov. 8.
