Last night, the Brooklyn Navy Yard was home to history as Hillary Clinton declared herself the first female major party nominee.
Clinton held a rally at the Duggal Greenhouse (Building 268, 63 Flushing Avenue) at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on June 7 as results rolled in from primaries in California, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and New Mexico.
“Tonight caps an amazing journey — a long, long journey,” said Clinton according to the New York Times.
The Associated Press reported that Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination on June 6.
Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has said that he will continue to fight until the Democratic convention next month, according to CNN.
The Navy Yard was the home to a primary debate between Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) back in April, during the run up to the New York primary. For a few weeks, Brooklyn was home to non-stop campaign stops by major party candidates on the campaign trail. Unfortunately, primary election day led to serious issues at the polls in Brooklyn and elsewhere.
