6:33 am
anything and it is still a hot day and cold front that will not live up to its name that brought in storms yesterday. we still hit 935. that's you know going to be a hot afternoon. but it won't be as again insufferable as yesterday was in the sunshine and no umbrellas required this time around. lather latheren on the sun flock if you hit ot pool or beach. >> great advice good morning everyone it's all dnc chatter this week and in the world of travel it will slow you down a little bit. we're seeing that now. give yourself extra time. what you are looking at now in birds eye view 95 and the vine and up to upper, middle part of your screen that's when we have another check point there where 95 wrapchs off moving in the southbound direction. overall things are looking pretty darn good here. coming off the ben franklin looking good there and slowing done a little bit. overall things looking okay. take a look at this.

6:37 am
because i believe this election is referendum on who best embodies leadership we need to go far together. donald trump is not that loade loader. and taking that stage last night with senator bernie sanders he wrapped up night with call for party unity and endorsed hillary clinton and is urging fans to back her, too, you may remember he spent a lot of day yesterday trying to ease tension after email scandle broke this weekend and he's looking forward to tonight's roll call and officially nominating hillary clinton as the democratic presidential candidate. we'll cover it all but we're live in south philadelphia as the wells fargo center, jim and brook back to you. >> thank you, jan. >> despite strong endorsements and speeches on clinton behalf party unity is in question after bernie supporters got dnc off to a rocky start. >> tom giordano from talk raid 1210 join us live from the news

6:40 am
to trump university. she made compelling point about that whole deal. >> now we talked about party unity throughout the election season. how does it compare from the dnc to rnc. >> we had a ted cruz moment i was there when it happened in cleveland he was booed and shoted down for not endorsing and knowing up and not doing the right thing. here you have any number of bernie people hurting but again the gel gat and all that they're okay. on the outside no unity in this and bernie people are annoyed at berp berp and elizabeth warp and in 2000 that's one of the reasons george push wanted. unity is not horrible but not unified group and either are
