Good morning, and welcome to Wednesday. It’s day three of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. On the second day, Hillary Clinton officially won the nomination, making history as the first female to ever top a major party ticket in the United States. And after that main order of business was accomplished, the rest of the night was largely devoted to promoting the notion that Clinton has a big heart and would work hard for people who need help. Here’s the Digest:

1. The main salesman for Clinton was her husband, former President Bill Clinton. His task was difficult, to reintroduce someone who has been on the national stage for two and a half decades. His speech started as a long rambling shaggy dog story, retelling how he met and married his wife. He built up to the notion that even though Hillary Clinton has been around for a long time, she is the “best darn change-maker I have ever known.” He argued that the image presented of her at the Republican convention was a cartoon, and that the real woman is a hard worker who makes everything she works on better.

2. In another effort to unify the party, it fell to Bernie Sanders to move that the convention nominate Clinton by acclamation (although by the time he did it, all the states had voted). It didn’t necessarily work, as many Sanders supporters walked out of the convention. Still, it was a historic moment 150 years in the making, and most delegates saw it that way. At the end of the night Clinton appeared via video, surrounded by young girls. (NPR)

3. Sen. Al Franken is a popular surrogate for Clinton in Philadelphia, in part because he’s been letting his comedic roots emerge. Since he was elected in 2008 he has gone out of his way not to be perceived as a clown by the national media, but he says  the Clinton campaign asked him to use humor to help her, and he agreed.

4. Sen. Amy Klobuchar used a speaking slot at the convention Tuesday night to praise Hillary Clinton for her work against human trafficking and the exploitation of women and girls. “When woman are bound and treated as sex slaves, tyrants rule,” Klobuchar said. (Star Tribune)

5. Shortly after Clinton won the nomination a family friend gave the liberal wing of the party yet another reason to doubt that she was with them. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe told reporters he expected Clinton to change her position again on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and support it with some changes. The Clinton campaign issued a flat denial, and McAullife tried to walk back the comments. (Politico)

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison shared the duty of making Minnesota’s roll call speech Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Minnesota delegates gave 47 votes to Bernie Sanders, who won the state precinct caucuses back in March, and 42 votes to Hillary Clinton.

But before sharing the votes, Klobuchar and Ellison dropped a lot of names as evidence of “great state” status. Klobuchar began with a rhyme.

“The state of Prince’s Purple Rain and the birthplace of Tim Kaine,” Klobuchar said.

She also mentioned Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken, Vice President Walter Mondale.

Ellison then followed up with a nod to Hubert Humphrey and a reference to his 1948 convention speech on civil rights. Ellison, who was an early supporter of Sanders, announced the state votes for Sanders.

Klobuchar announced the state number for Clinton.

Minnesota Republicans also mentioned Prince when they cast their ballots last week in Cleveland.

Philadelphia — Minnesota’s delegation to the Democratic National Convention has a noteworthy amount of racial and ethnic diversity, including three Somali-American delegates and one alternate.

Asad Aliweyd of Eden Prairie, a delegate supporting Bernie Sanders, was proudly boasting about the high representation Tuesday at the delegation’s hotel outside Philadelphia.

“We have only one other Somali, from South Carolina. That’s it,” Aliweyd said. “Minnesota has the largest delegates of Muslims and Somalis in the entire convention.”

Aliweyd is joined by Abdul Ahmed, a Clinton delegate from Coon Rapids, and Samakab Hussein, a Clinton delegate from St. Paul. Fartun Weli of Minneapolis is a Sanders alternate.

Aliweyd said he thinks the number of Somali-American delegate reflects well on Minnesota and its welcoming environment to immigrants. He said hopes to see even more political participation in the future.

“We feel that we are part of the society, and we feel like we’re part of the DFL party, he said.
