10:56 p.m.

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.

10:54 p.m.

Hillary Clinton says Democrats haven’t done a good enough job of showing working families that they understand what these families are going through.

Clinton says she agrees with families that have told her the economy just isn’t working.

She says Americans are willing to work, and work hard.

But right now, she says, “an awful lot of people feel there is less and less respect for the work they do.”

10:52 p.m.

Democratic Delegates have twice broken out in chants of “Hillary!” during their presidential nominee’s acceptance speech in order to drown out isolated hecklers in the convention hall.

Some supporters of primary rival Bernie Sanders still object to Clinton’s nomination and they were planning to express their displeasure.

Clinton hasn’t acknowledged any of the jeers or yelling.

Some Washington state delegates left quietly – with tape over their mouths – as Clinton spoke.
