PHILADELPHIA (WDRB) -- Speakers on the third night of the Democratic National Convention include Hillary Clinton's running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, and President Barack Obama.

Kaine took the stage around 10 p.m. Wednesday and accept the vice presidential nomination.

"For every American who wants our country to be a beloved community, where people aren't demeaned for who they are but appreciated for their contributions, for all us who know the brightest future is one we build together, and for my friend, Hillary Clinton's nomination to be Vice President of the Unites States," Kaine said. 

It's been a tumultuous few days at the Wells Fargo Center, but Democratic leaders hoped today would be an opportunity to unite the party.

President Obama followed, throwing his full support behind Clinton and her credentials to hold the position.

"I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman -- not me, not Bill, nobody -- more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States."
