Bernie Sanders: 'Clinton must become the next president'

And later in an appearance on NBC Sunday Trump called choosing Kaine a "slap in the face to Bernie Sanders and everybody" but said it was positive for his own campaign. Clinton suggested a chance for Democrats to take back the House; "who knows?" she said. Tim Kaine received a hero's welcome outside his Richmond home, capping off his debut as Hillary Clinton's running mate.

On the heels of a tumultuous Republican convention, Hillary Clinton hopes her gathering in Philadelphia will show off a forward-looking Democratic Party united behind her steady leadership.

Solomon said he believes a "vast majority" of Sanders delegates support these kinds of protests to express their dismay.

"This election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives", she said.

"I know that because Hillary knows that we're stronger together; we're stronger when we work together, when we grow together, when we pull together, when we live in the same neighborhood and worship together and go to school together".

In recent weeks, in an attempt to finally get Sanders' endorsement, Clinton had started incorporating more of his entitlement agenda - such as promoting free college tuition. The Bernie Delegates Network's press conference came just hours after outgoing DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was jeered at a breakfast and reportedly escorted out by security. Outside the arena, several hundred Sanders backers marched down Philadelphia's sweltering streets.

Behind the scenes, Sanders and Clinton aides joined forces to try to ease tensions. He stunned the Clinton campaign with his broad support among young people and liberals, as well as his online fundraising prowess.

Democrats are urging Sanders' supporters to agree that Trump isn't a viable alternative.

Sen. Bernie Sanders thinks former rival Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick of Sen.

"This is his 'hood, this is Kaine country", said Wolf.

Mrs. Obama was one of the night's standouts. The hacked DNC emails fed the suspicion of Sanders' supporters and sapped Clinton's campaign of some of its energy following a well-received rollout Saturday of her running mate, Virginia Sen.

He urged his friends and supporters to help him win the state for Clinton, saying there was too much at stake to let Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump win.

It now takes 2,382 delegates to formally clinch the nomination.

"Tonight we will make history, about 100 years in the making", said Karen Finney, a senior adviser for Clinton's campaign. The tone was a sharp contrast to the Republican convention, where the attacks against Clinton was bitingly personal, including chants of "Lock her up".

Wasserman Schultz had planned to be among those taking the stage, despite the email hacking controversy.
