With little time to go before the official nomination process begins (3 p.m. Denver time, 5 p.m. on the East Coast), Hillary Clinton released her delegates at a meeting with the New York delegation in the Sheraton.
The announcement was reportedly followed by “boos and moans.”
The D.N.C. announced the speakers who will officially do the nominations.
For Obama, it will be Republican Iraq War Veteran Michael Wilson, Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado, Representative Artur Davis of Alabama (an early Obama supporter), and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida (a major Clinton supporter during the primary who said yesterday that she thinks Obama has a lot of ground to make up in her home state).
Clinton will be officially nominated by Latina civil rights leader Dolores Huerta, a student named Jordan Apollo Pazell, and a campaign volunteer named Denise Williams Harris.
