PHILADELPHIA — History was made in Philadelphia Tuesday as Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination, becoming the first woman to be top to a major U.S. party ticket.

Democrats "just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling," Clinton told the DNC via live satellite.

She secured the minimum 2,382 delegates needed to claim the nomination. Among those delegates were 181 for Clinton and 108 for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from New York; and 90 for Clinton and 45 for Sanders from New Jersey.

The former first lady, New York senator and secretary of state faced Sanders in a tough primary fight for the nomination. In a show of unity, Sanders nominated Clinton by voice vote at the end of the roll call.

But despite Sanders' urging for party unity, a contingent of his supporters stormed out of the Wells Fargo Arena, waving signs that read "Bernie or Bust."
