It’s about time, America! Hillary Clinton, 68, is expected to become the official Democratic Party’s presidential nominee on July 26, after the DNC holds a roll call vote. Will supporters of Bernie Sanders, 74, try to throw a wrench in the convention’s plans? Or will they unite behind the candidate who got the most votes and try to defeat Donald Trump, 70, in the 2016 Presidential election? Coverage of Day 2 kicks off at 4:00 P.M. EST so be sure to watch!
Hillary’s historic nomination will be the most important part of the night, but the event will be jammed packed with stars. Elizabeth Banks, 42, will be the host for the evening, and the Wet Hot American Summer star will share the stage with America Ferrera, 32, Lena Dunham, 30, Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn, 56, and Hollywood legend, Meryl Streep, 67.
The night will also see speeches from House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, 76, Senator Barbara Boxer, 75 and Cecile Richards, 59 president of the Planned Parenthood. Former U.S. President (and possibly the first-ever First Gentleman) Bill Clinton, 69 will be there, but The Man From Hope won’t be the only ex-president speaking during Day 2 of the DNC. Jimmy Carter, 91, will deliver a special message via video.
One of the night’s most powerful speeches will come from the Mothers of The Movement, a group of speakers including the mothers of black Americans killed as result of police actions. Mothers of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin and more will lend their voice to the DNC.
It’s going to be an incredible and historic night, so be sure you watch every single second. HollywoodLifers – which moment of Day 2 of the DNC are you looking forward to the most?
