Hollywood Celebrates Hillary Clinton's Historic Nomination
Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Larry King and more took to social media to congratulate the Democratic nominee.
Hillary Clinton made history Tuesday when she became the first woman to ever lead a major political party into the general election.
At the Democratic National Convention, delegates cheered her historic nomination after Vermont passed during the roll call and Bernie Sanders later joined the delegation. Sanders then took the microphone to vote that all of his states' votes go to Clinton, voting to "suspend the rules" and nominate Clinton as the presidential candidate of the Democratic party.
Clinton's supporters took to social media shortly after the historic moment to congratulate her and celebrate with fellow #ImWithHer followers. Later on Tuesday, Lena Dunham and former President Bill Clinton are set to take the stage.
See some of the reactions below.
