Watch their full speeches below.
• Matt Pearce kept up his reporter’s journal from the streets of Philadelphia.
• A series of leaked emails revealing the party’s pro-Hillary Clinton tilt has overshadowed efforts to rally delegates behind the presumptive nominee.
• Nearly every mention of Hillary Clinton’s name was met with a chorus of boos from the convention floor. Bernie Sanders’ supporters also shouted down speakers at California’s delegation gathering and booed when he implored them to support Hillary Clinton. Tonight’s convention theme was “United Together.”
