Tuesday marked day two of the four-day DNC event where presenters affirmed Joe Biden on his character and leadership.
Presenters of the Democratic National Convention also drew a stark contrast between Biden and his opponent who is scrambling to maintain his position in the White House after the November election.
In an unprecedented and elaborate roll call vote that took place entirely online due to the coronavirus pandemic, all 50 states and seven territories announced their vote tallies that cemented Biden's role as the party flagbearer.
It was a diverse array of politicians, everyday Americans and even some of Biden's erstwhile rivals who helped nominated the 77-year-old Biden.
"Well thank you very, very much, from the bottom of my heart," a beaming Biden said in a live video link.
"It means the world to me and my family," he added, reminding viewers he will deliver a formal acceptance speech on Thursday at the conclusion of the four-day jamboree.
