John Kerry Nominated!

by Taylor Sias

At  11:37 EDT in Boston, John Kerry was officially nominated by the Democratic Party for President in 2004.

In a move clearly designed to demonstrate Ohio's importance to Sen. Kerry's electoral strategy, the state of Minnesota deferred voting and allowed Ohio to officially be the state to coronate Kerry's nomination. Former Sen. John Glenn announced that all 150 delegates from Ohio had pledged their support to Kerry, officially giving him the 2,162 delegates needed to nominate.

Kerry will finish the night with an overwhelming majority of the delegates having pledged their support for his nomination. As they are finishing the Roll Call, Kerry has 2391 delegates and only 31 pledged to other primary candidates.

Tomorrow night, Democratic nominee John Kerry will address the Convention shortly after 10:00.
