Democratic Party of Wisconsin delegates released the following statements with regards to Hillary Clinton being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party:

“With Hillary Clinton making history as the first female presidential nominee of a major party, Democrats have shown that the presidency is not a job reserved for men. Women across this country know they can achieve anything, even the presidency of the United States. Her decades of hard work as a lawyer for the Children’s Defense Fund, as our First Lady, as the first women senator from New York, and as our Secretary of State has made her, to paraphrase President Barack Obama – the most qualified person ever nominated to be president.” – Crystal Miller, Madison

“168 years after the the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York, the Democratic Party has made history by electing Hillary Clinton the be the first female presidential nominee of a major party. We have shown young women across this country they can grow up striving to be anything.” – Melissa Schroeder, Merrill

“Not only have we made history by electing the first female presidential nominee of a major party, we have selected the most qualified person ever to run for President. Hillary Clinton’s experience, her personal qualities, and the vision she has for America is exactly what we need to keep moving our country forward.” – Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, Milwaukee 

“Hillary Clinton understands that many factors affect a child’s ability to learn including poverty, access to health care, and the ability to recruit and retain quality teachers. She will work tirelessly to to ensure all of these factors are addressed when we elect her the next president of the United States. Hillary Clinton understands the need to hear teachers’ voices, has made recruiting and retaining quality teachers a priority, and has begun to call for more accountability in our public charter schools.” – Tanya Lohr, West Bend

“Hillary Clinton has spent her life fighting to level the playing field, and she will continue that work when we elect her to the White House in November. She has shown even when barriers are thrown up, the qualities of perseverance, love and a vision of a better future is enough to overcome even the toughest obstacles – it is for these reasons I am so proud she is our nominee.” – Heather Colburn, Madison

“After tonight, little girls across this country can grow up truly believing they can aspire to be anything. Not only has Hillary Clinton made history by being the first female presidential nominee of a major party, her compassion, dedication, and intelligence are all qualities we want our children to grow up and have. When she is president, all of us will have a president we can look up to and be proud of.” – Lakeshia Myers, Milwaukee
