Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton is calling on voters to “stand up to bullies.”

She says her mother never let her back down from a challenge, and “literally blocked the door” when a young Hillary tried to hide from a neighborhood bully.

Clinton says she still hears her mother urging her “to keep working, keep fighting for right, no matter what.”

She says that, “More than a few times, I’ve had to pick myself up and get back in the game.”

Clinton is closing her speech at the Democratic National Convention by urging Americans to look to the future “with courage and confidence.”

Clinton: Trump not fit to be president

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton is questioning whether Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has the temperament to be commander in chief.

She says Trump “can’t even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign.

”Clinton says Trump loses his cool at the “slightest provocation” — when he’s gotten tough questions from reporters, when he’s challenged in a debate or when he sees a protester at a rally.

Here’s her take: “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Clinton says 'we will prevail' over enemies

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton says the U.S. needs a leader who’ll work with allies to keep America safe.

Clinton says the presidential election presents a stark choice on national security, with the U.S. facing what she says are “determined enemies that must be defeated.”

She says people want “steady leadership.”

Clinton says she’s proud of the Iran nuclear and global climate agreements — and says both must be enforced now.

Neither deal happened while she was in government.

Clinton says she’ll stand by NATO allies against any Russian threats.

And she’s pledging to defeat the Islamic States group with airstrikes and support for local ground forces, while authorizing a “surge” in intelligence to prevent terrorist attacks.

Clinton says: “We will prevail.”

Clinton assails Trump’s business record

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton is assailing Donald Trump’s record as a businessman.

She points to Atlantic City, New Jersey — about 60 miles from Philadelphia, site of the Democratic convention. She says there are contractors and small businesses that lost everything because Trump refused to pay his bills for work they did in his casinos.

Clinton says Trump talks a “big game” about putting America first. But Trump’s clothing line is made overseas, not in the United States. The same goes for other Trump products, such as furniture and picture frames, Clinton says.

“Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again,” she says. “Well, he could start by actually making things in America again,” she says.

 Clinton calls her nomination a milestone

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton says her presidential nomination is a milestone on America’s “march toward a more perfect union.”

Clinton is the first woman nominee of a major party. She tells the Democratic convention that the achievement is special “for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between.”

But she says the nation must keep going until all 161 million women and girls in the country have the opportunities they deserve.

Clinton says: “When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.”

She says she’s happy for boys and men, too, because when a barrier fall, it clears the way for all.

Clinton says she’d be president for all

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton says she’d be a president for Democrats, Republicans and independents — “for all those who vote for me and those who don’t.”

She says she’s met many people who motivate her to fight for change, including sick children and survivors of 9/11.

Clinton says “it’s true, I sweat the details of policy.

She says details should be a “big deal” to the president.

Clinton says no one person can fix everything

Philadelphia — Hillary Clinton is telling Democrats at the party’s national convention not to believe anyone who says, “I alone can fix it.”

That’s a knock on her Republican rival, Donald Trump. He told GOP delegates a week ago that he’s the only one who can fix “the system.”

Clinton is accepting the Democratic nomination and warning that Trump’s words should “set off alarm bells for all of us.”

She accusing Trump of forgetting such people as America’s troops, its police and firefighters, teachers and others.

Clinton says Americans don’t say, “I alone can fix it” but “we’ll fix it together.”

She’s emphasizing her point by saying the Founding Fathers designed the Constitution so America would be a nation where no one person has all the power.

Clinton accepts Dem nomination with ‘humility’

Hillary Clinton says she accepts the Democratic presidential nomination with “humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise.”

Clinton says the slogan “stronger together” that’s been featured in her campaign is a guiding principle for the country.

She says it’ll help define a future with a healthy economy “for everyone, not just those at the top.”

Clinton says it also means good schools for rich and poor, and safe communities.

Clinton is recalling the book she wrote while she served as first lady. She says “It Takes a Village” envisions a country in which people work together to make “our nation better and stronger.”

Clinton says Trump wants ‘us to fear the future’

Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump has brought the Republican Party a long way — from “Morning in America” to “Midnight in America.”

The Democratic presidential candidate says Trump “wants us to fear the future and fear each other.”

“It’s morning in America” was an optimistic line from a famous political ad aired by Ronald Reagan.

Clinton is asking whether Trump would stay true to the phrase on the country’s seal — “E Pluribus Unum,” or out of many, we are one.

And her take? “We heard Donald Trump’s answer last week at his convention. He wants to divide us — from the rest of the world, and from each other.”

She says President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous words are the perfect rebuke: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

Hillary Clinton says she’s heard Sanders backers

Hillary Clinton says she’s heard the views of Bernie Sanders’ steadfast supporters and says their cause is her cause.

She’s giving her presidential acceptance speech at the Democratic convention after a hard-fought race with the Vermont senator.

She’s praising Sanders for putting economic and social justice issues “front and center” — where she says they belong.

And she tells Sanders’ supporters the country needs their “ideas, energy and passion.”

She’s asking them to move forward and turn their platform into “real change for America.”

Hillary Clinton returning praise she’s gotten

Hillary Clinton is returning the praise she has received all week from leading Democrats.

Clinton is delivering her acceptance speech for the Democratic presidential nomination.

She’s thanking President Barack Obama and says she’s a better person because of Obama’s friendship.

She has kind words for first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and her running mate, Tim Kaine.

Clinton says people are “soon going to understand” why Kaine is so popular in Virginia, which he represents in the Senate.

She says Kaine will make the “whole country proud as our vice president.”

The former first daughter says her mother, Hillary Clinton, is a progressive and a fighter.

Clinton says her mom will fight to protect the planet, stop gun violence, overhaul the criminal justice system and work to secure human rights abroad.

The list is aimed at winning over reluctant liberals who haven’t yet let go of Sanders’ primary bid.

Chelsea Clinton says mom looks for solutions

Chelsea Clinton is offering a daughter’s view of her mom’s life work.

The former first daughter says she’s had a “front-row seat” to watch how Hillary Clinton serves. She’s describing her mom as a diligent public servant who looks for solutions and dives into policy.

Chelsea Clinton tells the Democratic convention in Philadelphia on Thursday that she’s seen her mom surrounded by “stack of memos and reports” to review policy.

And she’s seen her promise struggling mothers she’d do all she could to help them.

Chelsea Clinton says she’s learned this from her mom: “Public service is about service.”

Chelsea Clinton warms up Dem convention for mom

Chelsea Clinton tells the Democratic convention that her mother has always made her feel “valued and loved,” and she says Hillary Clinton wants that for every child.

The younger Clinton calls that desire “the calling of her life.”

She’s introducing the former secretary of state, who’s set to formally accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for the presidency on Thursday night.

Chelsea Clinton notes that her parents “expected me to have opinions” — and that they taught her “to back them up with facts.”

Pop star Katy Perry not afraid to get political

Katy Perry isn’t afraid to get political.

The pop star prefaced her Democratic convention performance with a message for her young fans: Get out and vote.

Perry says the election is a chance to be as powerful as a National Rifle Association lobbyist — or a chance to cancel out what she’s calls “your weird cousin’s vote.”

Perry notes she’s been campaigning for Hillary Clinton since the Iowa caucuses.

Retired general backs Clinton, says he trusts her

A retired Marine general has delivered an impassioned endorsement of Hillary Clinton. And he’s blasting Donald Trump for saying suspected terrorists should be tortured and for offering conditional U.S. support of NATO allies.

John Allen tells Democratic delegates the election between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will help determine the country’s future.

As the crowd chants “USA! USA!” Allen says he trusts Clinton to be commander in chief.

Allen says that under Clinton, the military won’t become what he calls an “instrument of torture.” Allen says that with Clinton in the White House, U.S. international relations won’t be reduced to a business transaction.

Allen most recently served as America’s special envoy to the coalition fighting Islamic State militants. He’s also a former commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Trump accused of smearing character of Muslims

The father of an Army captain — a Muslim-American killed in Iraq — has lead a strong condemnation of Donald Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States.

Khizr Khan is a Muslim who came to the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates. He’s accusing Trump of smearing the character of Muslims and other groups.

“Let me ask you, have you ever read the United State Constitution?” Khan said in his speech at the Democratic convention as he directed his words at the GOP presidential nominee.

Khan then said: “I will gladly lend you my copy.”

Khan says his late son wouldn’t have been allowed in the country if Trump’s ban was in place.

Sanders camp asks delegates to respect Clinton

The Bernie Sanders campaign is urging calm among its 1,900 delegates on the final night of the Democratic National Convention.

The campaign says in a text message to delegates it would be a “courtesy to Bernie” if the delegates show respect to Hillary Clinton when she gives her speech accepting the party’s nomination for president.

The text tells the delegates the Clinton campaign asked her delegates on Monday to be respectful to Sanders when he spoke to the convention. The text asks delegates to “extend the same respect” to Clinton.

Some Sanders delegates are wearing high-visibility green T-shirts at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The delegates are expressing solidarity with the Vermont senator to the end of the convention.

Democrats find a Republican they can cheer for

Doug Elmets is a Republican who Democrats can cheer for.

Elmets — who worked in the Reagan White House — earned a roar from the crowd at the Democratic convention Thursday night when he took the stage and said he was backing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Elmets says Clinton will be the first Democrat to get his vote — and he’s blaming Donald Trump for driving him away from the Republican Party.

He’s borrowing a line from the late Lloyd Bentsen — the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1988 — to tweak Trump for likening himself to Reagan.

Elmets says: “I knew Ronald Reagan. I worked for Ronald Reagan. Donald Trump, you are no Ronald Reagan!”

This time, host governor is at party convention

They held a political convention and the governor of the host state actually came. And spoke.

That was Tom Wolf on the stage Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and he was taking shots at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Wolf’s presence in the convention hall is a reminder that Republicans couldn’t feature a home-state governor at their convention in Cleveland last week.

That’s because Ohio Republican John Kasich is a former Trump primary rival and sharp critic. Kasich steered clear of the GOP convention

Wolf says, unlike Trump, Hillary Clinton will “reward companies that share profits with their employees.”

Clinton says she offers ‘steady leadership’

Hillary Clinton says Americans are facing a stark choice in the presidential election — between her “steady leadership” on national security and what she says Donald Trump’s offering.

That’s according to excerpts of Clinton’s nomination acceptance speech that her campaign has released ahead of her Thursday night address at the Democrat convention.

Clinton is set to tell Americans that she understands their worries about turmoil in the world.

She’s says violent attacks in Iraq, France, Belgium and Florida have caused much unease and anxiety — and people are “looking for reassurance — looking for steady leadership.” She says she offers just that.

Clinton says U.S. again ‘at a moment of reckoning’

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is offering a preview of her acceptance speech at the Democratic convention, where she’ll say “America is once again at a moment of reckoning.”

Clinton plans to tell the convention crowd later Thursday night that “powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart” and that Americans must “decide whether we’re going to work together so we can all rise together.”

Her campaign has released excerpts of her upcoming speech.

Clinton says her primary mission as president will be to “create more opportunity and more good jobs with rising wages right here in the United States.”

She says she’ll focus on places she says have been “left out and left behind.” She says that includes inner cities and small towns, from “Indian Country to Coal Country” and “from the industrial Midwest to the Mississippi Delta to the Rio Grande Valley.”

Clinton aide: Sanders backers to come around

A Hillary Clinton campaign adviser says he’s not worried about winning over Bernie Sanders’ supporters.

“Most of them are going to come around.”

That’s what John Podesta thinks.

Podesta says he knows there are some in the Sanders camp who are still “emotional” and wish Clinton didn’t win more votes than the Vermont senator in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

But Podesta says most of Sanders’ supporters are looking at the election as a choice between Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

Podesta spoke after some Sanders delegates at the party’s convention wore neon yellow shirts to protest Clinton’s nomination.

Sanders allies’ message with glow-in-dark shirts

Some Bernie Sanders supporters are wearing glow-in-the-dark shirts on the final night of Democrats convention in Philadelphia.

They say it’s a way to remind presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that she hasn’t brought them all on board yet.

For Clinton, the silent protest probably is preferable to the heckling and booing from that marked the early days of the convention.

Sanders delegate Davena Norris says her bright shirt is meant to send a message that more needs to be done to curb the influence of money in politics.

Trump says Dems telling ‘lot of lies’ about him

Donald Trump says “a lot of lies are being told” about him in the speeches at the Democratic National Convention this week.

The Republican presidential nominee is joking about it during a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa.

“Boy, I’m getting hit” by Democrats — he says. “I guess they have to do their thing.”

Trump is criticizing Democrats for not talking about terrorism or laying out a plan to aid the economy.

Some Sanders backers want DNC apology on TV

Die-hard Bernie Sanders supporters from Oregon’s delegation say they’re demanding a nationally televised apology at the Democratic National Convention before Hillary Clinton takes the stage Thursday night to accept the presidential nomination.

The matter involves leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee that indicated party officials were biased against the Vermont senator.

The DNC has apologized and the party’s leader, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is resigning her post.

But Melissa Pancurak tells The Associated Press that those steps don’t go far enough. She says the Oregon delegates are part of a coalition of Sanders supporters working to get their demand to appropriate DNC officials before Clinton’s speech.
