You're reading: Bill Clinton urges Americans to stick with Obama
on social media

Clinton, in a rousing address to a television audience of millions, formally nominated Obama as the Democratic candidate in what is expected to be a tight race against Republican Mitt Romney. Immediately after Clinton’s speech, delegates at the Democratic National Convention made the nomination official in a state-by-state roll call vote.

Obama’s acceptance speech Thursday will mark the climax of the three-day convention, though Democrats have abandoned plans for Obama to deliver the address at a large football stadium, citing weather concerns.

Democrats have used their convention to push back against Republican claims at their gathering last week that Obama’s devotion to big-government solutions has stifled the U.S. economy and swollen the national deficit. Democrats have countered that Romney would go back to the economic policies that led to a recession, helping the wealthy while harming the poor and middle class.
