Hillary Clinton declared victory Tuesday night as the first woman to become the presumptive presidential nominee of a major political party.
Speaking to supporters at a rally in Brooklyn, she connected the moment to generations of women and men who have fought for equality.
“I’m going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we’ve made here,” she said during the speech. “But what I care about most is the history our country has yet to write. Our children and grandchildren will look back at this time, at the choices we are about to make, the goals we will strive for, the principles we will live by. And we need to make sure that they can be proud of us.”
Here are her remarks from the Brooklyn Navy Yard:
