Statement by CWA Vice President Claude Cummings, chair of the CWA Human Rights Committee, and a delegate to the Democratic National Convention.
This week’s action by Democratic convention delegates points to the tremendous contrast between Hillary Clinton, the first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party, and the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, who was nominated last week.
I could not be prouder that my party nominated Hillary Clinton for President, making her the first women in our nation’s 240-year history chosen as a major party presidential nominee. History was made. One of the last glass ceilings is deeply cracked and ready to shatter.
