>> this vote for secretary clinton -- >> reporter: from the convention floor, delegate by delegate and state by state, this convention roll call is expected to officially make hillary clinton the presidential nominee of this democratic party. as her challenger, bernie sanders, again today made the rounds calling for unity. >> so our first task is to make sure that hillary clinton is elected our next president. >> reporter: but this afternoon we found two delegates, just steps apart on this floor, and yet worlds apart politically. >> i am so excited to be part of the nomination of our next president of the united states, hillary clinton. >> reporter: how are you feeling? >> well, in my roll call, i voted for bernie sanders. and this is, i guess, our last shot at a hail mary. >> reporter: michelle of nebraska was drawing attention to her native american heritage and remains 2r0ubtroubled by whe
sees in hillary clinton's opponent. she has supported clinton for decades and believes sanders amounts to supporting trump. two delegates, one party, still divided even now. despite the ongoing push from the candidates. how does the democratic party get past that? >> i'm hoping through bernie sanders and i'm hoping through bernies supporters seeing the light so to speak. >> reporter: if the party addresses what you call wrong-doing, are you willing to go over to the clinton camp? >> it depends on how they project it. half-hearted apology doesn't change anything. there has to be accountability. >> reporter: live right now, you can see the roll call process happening right now. the state of massachusetts just beginning its voting. delegate group by delegate group, state by state. they make their way, casting votes for the two candidates.
the two candidates in the democratic party. the expectation is that with the final vote ending with the state of vermont, about 45 minutes from now, the first female presidential candidate nominee of a major party will be hillary rodham clinton. jim? >> george spencer down on the floor. you'll be there as history is made. the headliner is former president bill clinton. this is his tenth convention speech. we're told the former president will focus on things the public might not know about his wife. nbc 10's lauren mayk joining us live from down on the floor as well. lauren, you spoke with delegates about how they're feeling hearing from bill clinton, right? >> reporter: jim, bill clinton has been a force in this party for a very, very long time. if you look around this room, there are certainly people who worked to get him elected once, then again. then took his encouragement to help elect barack obama.
you remember that very powerful speech from him for barack obama four years ago. tonight he will be making another speech. this one for his wife. i spoke with a delegate who has a long history with the clintons, even served as a delegate for hillary clinton back in 2008. how are you going to feel tonight when you see him up there and knowing that she is being nominated tonight? >> excited. because i think it will make history. it shows that a man can be for his wife to be president of the united states. and they have a good stronghold. it just makes me feel good. we've come a long way. african-americans, the president, and a woman president. >> reporter: that was mary ann from philadelphia. i remember when bill clinton spoke in philadelphia earlier this year, she was the one who
introduced him. he spoke very warmly of her, thanking her for all of her work. certainly bill and hillary clinton will be looking to her and to others they have met and gotten to know in philadelphia and throughout pennsylvania, hoping to keep that state blue this year. jim, back to you. >> lauren mayk, thank you. other people we'll be hearing from tonight, mothers of the movement. they're going to get a chance to voice their concerns about gun violence. the women got a chance to do a walk-through this afternoon ahead of tonight's speech. several women who lost their children to gun violence or at the hands of police will take the stage tonight. gabby giffords knows gun violence firsthand. today she spoke at a gun violence prevention rally. she was about one of a dozen people shot in tucson five years ago, six people died there. today giffords said stopping violence takes courage. all day long, different groups have taken to the streets of
philadelphia to protest. each of them with a different message. despite thousands, so far second day of peaceful demonstrations out there, nbc 10's tim furlong joining us live from city hall to tell us how things are going where you are, tim. >> reporter: yeah, another day of peaceful protests. another day you don't want to drive your car around city hall. we're on the south side of city hall. as you turn onto broad street. as you can see, the streets are clogged right now. this is black lives matter, the council for real justice. there are a whole bunch of different groups here, actually, protesting police violence and police brutality. the march is starting to go back down broad street. we're told they're heading down to the wells fargo center. if you need to get around south philadelphia, it's going to get pretty tricky here. you do not want to go on broad street. the big part of the group is still behind us, but we're coming up on broad and chestnut. this is not a great spot to be. it's clogging up the entire
area, if you need to drive through here. tim furlong, nbc 10 news. back to you. >> as we know, tim, not unexpected that they're marching down broad, disrupting things nonetheless. thanks for the update. as for the republican nominee, donald trump, he picked a fight with cory booker after last night's speech here. trump tweeted, if booker is the future of the democratic party, they have no future, and he knows more about cory than he knows about himself, said donald trump. cory booker responded today, he said, quote, i love you, donald, i pray for you, i hope that you find some kindness in your heart that you're not going to be somebody that spews out insults to your political opposition, that you're going to find some way to love that response from cory booker. social media is buzzing also with fashions at the dnc, from creative hats and buttons and pins. lots of fashion statements on this convention floor. nbc.com has our digital

winds gusting near 17 miles an hour. a little breezy. but it will stay warm as we go through tonight and even into tomorrow. another hot day. right at the bottom of your screen, your seven-day is scrolling so you'll be able to see the heat finally breaking, at least breaking out of the 90s. mostly 90s throughout pennsylvania right now. lehigh valley close to 90 degrees right now. the pennsylvania neighborhoods, cochranville 88 degrees. exton 87. a lot more comfortable in some areas. 89 degrees for phoenixville. if you're in parts of montgomery, and bucks county, you're mostly around 90 degrees. elroy coming in 89. collegeville coming in 95 degrees for washington. 91 degrees right now. when you factor in the humidity, take a look at the feels-like temperature. delaware has been under that excessive heat still today. 101 is the feels-like temperature in delaware and dover right now.
93 what it feels like in philadelphia. feels like 90 in mount holly. we're still in a heat wave. it's still in the 90s. we're not breaking out of it for the next couple of days. we started our heat wave last friday. we stayed in the 90s across the weekend. and today, and tomorrow, and thursday, we expect to be in the heat wave again. and temperatures normally this time of the year should be 87 degrees. but we're well above that. we're not going to break out of that until we go later into the week with some showers and storms. so rain returning late this week. it will start to break us out of the heat wave. here's a look at future weather. for tonight we stay dry. tomorrow through most of the day, we'll be mostly dry. still going to be heating up into the low 90s. thursday we'll have a better chance of some showers and storms. most of this could be south of philadelphia. can't rule out thunderstorm through the philadelphia area. we go into friday, and friday could start on a drier note. throughout the day we have another chance for scattered showers and storms. so breaking out of the heat wave by the end of the week, and into
the weekend, along with that rain, temperatures will start to get back into the 80s. your ten-day, your temperatures over the next couple of days, stay in the 90s. friday, 88 degrees. saturday, 87. scattered showers and storms as well as sunday. so both weekend days we actually have a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. going into next week, though, we start in the 80s, but we get back to around 90 degrees wednesday, thursday and friday. as far as your weekend forecast for the entire area, really no matter where you're heading, we have a chance of thunderstorms both weekend days. if you're in the pennsylvania suburbs, expect mid-80les. at least we're breaking out of the 90s and the oppressive heat over the weekend. keep in mind we'll see some showers and thunderstorms around. if you're heading to the shore, mid-80s, delaware looking at the mid-80s. at least we're not going to be looking at the 90s and the triple-digit heat again.
