7:03 am
humility, determination and boundless confidence in america's promise that i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: the former first lady, senator and secretary of state officially accepting the democratic party nomination for president. the first woman to ever do so. >> we are the party of working people. >> reporter: promising is litany of progressive economic policies in a speech that could have been delivered by bernie sanders. >> bernie, your campaign inspired millions of americans. >> reporter: ee vis rating donald trump's vision of america. >> america is great because america is good. >> reporter: slamming his convention speech. >> he spoke for 70 odd minutes and i do mean odd. >> reporter: questioning trump's fitness for office. >> a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.
7:04 am
>> reporter: speaking to a massive television audience clinton appealed to voters alienated by the republican party nominee. >> i will be a president for democrats, republicans, independents, for the struggling, the striving, the successful, for all those who vote for me and for those who don't. >> reporter: and finally she took a moment to acknowledge her historic accomplishment. >> tonight -- tonight we've reached a milestone in our nation's march toward a more perfect union. the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president. after all, when there are no ceilings the sky's the limit. >> reporter: daughter chelsea introducing her before the two appeared on stage to a roaring crowd and a visibly emotional bill clinton looking on. the final night of the democratic national convention came to an end with fanfare and drama. featuring a performance by katy
7:05 am
perry and attempted interruptions from a small faction of bernie sanders delegates. now with 101 days until the election clinton is hoping to rally voters to her side. >> america's destiny is ours to choose. so let's be stronger together, my fellow americans. >> reporter: clinton acknowledging she does have ground to make up to make people trust her. she will tackle that starting today when the clintons and running mate tim kaine and his wife leave on a bus tour of two vital swing states, pennsylvania and ohio. trying to replicate the magic of the clinton/gore bus tours nearly a quarter century ago. >> andrea, thank you so much. let's turn to team sleepl s sleepless, chuck todd and nicolle wallace. good morning. >> good morning. >> are you doing okay? >> we are going to start sleeping in november. >> hillary clinton had a lot to accomplish in this speech last night.
7:06 am
she had to take on donald trump, she had to embrace bernie sanders and his supporters, she had to acknowledge the history that she's been making. how did she do? >> i thought she did great on two of the three things you mentioned. i thought she was speaking to the room, that was a speech written for what she knew would be one of her tasks to unite the democratic party and i thought she spoke to the history of the moment. i don't think she built on what president obama did the night before which was open up this election and open up the democrats' message to the entire country. i thought she squandered of what he accomplished the night before by operating republicans and democrats away from trump. >> i was surprised at how liberal and progressive the speech was. it really was. you felt as if the shadow of bernie sanders was hanging over her head as they were writing that speech, which you understand they want to be united, but it was -- if you thought a year ago -- if you went back a year ago and said this would be your speech you would have said, wow, this doesn't sound like hillary clinton. it is amazing how much influence bernie sanders has. >> the fact that she is a democrat is priced into the
7:07 am
stock. the real work she has to do has to do with these issues of character and trust. i'm trying to imagine that voter who is genuinely torn and watched this speech, was it persuasive on that front? >> the speech wasn't but the night had other highlights. the democratic party had a fantastic week. they strung together four very solid nights. there were speeches for the ages in michelle obama and president obama's speech and the father of a muslim soldier who dried to his country gave the most stinging rebuke to donald trump's news listen ban. >> if it convention moves numbers the way i think it will move numbers it will be mostly that wednesday night with president obama, joe biden, the entirety of that night, it was the night that a bunch of democrats who had -- are in good standing with the american voters made their case for hillary clinton. while i don't think her speech last night was going to be as
7:08 am
decisive, between president obama and what some others did i think the totality will be helpful to her. >> we're going to do best and worst. you're saying best was mr. khan. >> best moment of the night was mr. khan. >> the convention. >> i thought president obama's speech was remarkable. >> what was the last speech. >> i think booing during leon panetta who was the man that was responsible for the operation that captured osama bin laden. >> look, you have to say the president obamas. it's possible that the two best speeches of this convention are both given by the last name of obama, both mrs. obama and the president. just in general i thought the behavior of the sanders supporters, particularly last night, they really were -- i don't know if -- >> we wondered if you could see it on tv. >> it impacted her, it bothered her the whole time, i think that's what hurt the delivery a little bit. >> they did it to a medal of honor winner. >> it was a small group, this is not to indict all sanders supporters but they did sort of -- they were disruptive
7:09 am
enough. >> and it was continuous, it didn't happen just once. she powered through it but it was distracting. >> you could tell it didn't help her delivery. >> thanks so much. donald trump was busy on twitter overnight hitting back at some of the points hillary clinton made in that speech. nbc's hallie jackson is on the road with the trump campaign in cedar rapids, iowa. good morning, hallie. >> reporter: hi, matt. good morning. donald trump's campaign is now calling hillary clinton's speech a collection of cliches and recycled rhetoric delivered from a fantasy universe. and that underscores the fundamental difference in how each campaign is framing this race. from clinton, optimism, from trump, warnings about what could happen if he doesn't end up on offense after hillary clinton's acceptance speech, donald trump tweeting hillary's vision is a borderless world where working people have no power, no jobs and no safety. and this, hillary's refusal to mention radical islam as she pushes a 550% increase in
7:10 am
refugees is move proof she's not ready to lead the country. -- unfit to lead the country. backing off on president obama, a kind of compliment only trump could deliver. >> i thought the speech was good and i thought it was well delivered. >> reporter: the gop nominee's strategy is accusing rivals of being out of touch and living in a fantasy world. >> they're not talking about the real world. they're not talking about radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: trump himself under fire from across the aisle. >> by the way, donald trump, i didn't put my life on the line to defend our democracy so you could invite russia to interfere in it. >> reporter: new fallout for encouraging espionage from russia against hillary clinton and now a new defense. >> i was being sarcastic when i said it but where are those e-mails. >> sarcasm he says. national security experts not
7:11 am
laughing. trump's talk about russia raising new questions about his relationship with its president, vladimir putin. >> he said one nice thing about me. >> here's what he said in 2013 to thomas roberts. >> i do have a relationship. i can tell you that he's very interested in what we're doing here today. >> reporter: a trump aide maintaining the two men have never had a personal relationship arguing nothing trump has said publicly contradicts that. those public comments including these in 2014. >> i spoke indirectly and directly with president putin who could not have been nicer. >> reporter: and these in 2015. >> i got to know him very well because we were both on "60 minutes." >> reporter: and on the topic of national security, trump will start receiving intelligence briefings any day now that both he and hillary clinton have been formally nominated by their parties. it's likely the director of national intelligence james clapper will handle those
7:12 am
briefings himself. >> hallie jackson, thank you. >> let's look at the road ahead for trump and clinton. steve kornacki, good morning. you have the same battlegrounds that all candidates are fighting over. do you see that change in that dynamic this time? >> this is what it looked like in 2012. we are in the longest period of stability in american history with the electoral map but with donald trump appealing to different voters and turning off different voters than we're used to and there's a new fault line closing off traditional states for him and opening some up maybe. >> what are hardest states to turn from blue to red? >> he has to flip blue states to get to 270. you think of two right away. look at virginia and look at colorado. remember how much time we spent on these states the last few elections? if you look at the type of voter here it's more suburban and
7:13 am
college educated and more culturally moderate and rising hispanic population in colorado. these states may close off donald trump even though they were prime battlegrounds four years ago. the flip side is he's appealing to blue collar voters. pennsylvania. state republicans haven't carried since '88. ohio obviously we're familiar with that. also if you're donald trump and this is going to be your path, look at michigan. look at wisconsin. look at iowa. maybe nevada. you don't necessarily see it yet but that's where you'll have to see it. >> no question the democratic ticket is headed to pennsylvania and ohio today. you took the 2012 map and said we'll work from that and see what happens. >> you can see if you took donald trump right here and gave him pennsylvania and you gave him ohio and you gave him michigan and wisconsin, boom, he hit 270. >> real quickly, steve, are there states that hillary
7:14 am
clinton has a chance to expand, a red state turning blue? >> that's the flip side of this new fault line that trump introduced. a couple states to keep an eye on this fall that we're not used to. georgia. polling out of georgia that shows a dead even race right there. north carolina, obama came close in 2012. hillary clinton has been leading in polls out there. how about arizona. rising large hispanic population there and the ultimate wild card on this map, utah. the mormon population has been very hostile toward donald trump and polling shows an even race in utah. >> who would have thought that. steve, thank you so much. let us turn to breaking news overnight in san diego. two police officers shot in the line of duty. one of them fatally. nbc's steve patterson is there. steve, what can you tell us? >> reporter: matt, police looking for possibility of a second suspect.
7:15 am
another officer wounded and now recovering after an exchange of gun fire. this morning one police officer is dead, the other in the hospital following a shooting in downtown san diego. police say the officers were making a routine stop when a gunman opened fire. >> we have two officers down. >> use caution into the area. we do not know where the shots are coming from. >> almost immediately they called for emergency cover. other officers were in the area. they arrived shortly on scene and found both of our officers suffering from gunshot wounds. >> reporter: authorities not releasing the names of the officers say one was shot multiple times in the torso and died of those injuries. the other is still in the hospital surrounded by family, friends and colleagues fighting for his life. >> extremely difficult. you can imagine early in the morning when a chief knocks on the door of a family member. >> reporter: the shooting prompted a massive lockdown of the area. helicopters, s.w.a.t. teams and patrols swarming the
7:16 am
neighborhood. one suspect was taken into custody overnight while police continue the search for other possible suspects keeping the community on edge. >> cop cars just rolled up and then i saw roughly 20 cops with shotguns running down this street. >> never experienced anything like this. it's like the military just rolled up the way the police just kind of swarmed the street, which i feel safe knowing that the cops showed up that fast. it feels a little uneasy. >> reporter: we know both officers are part of a gang suppression officer. chief of police says the wounded officer is expected to survive
7:17 am
and is out of surgery. new concerns over zika. nbc's kerry sanders is in ft. lauderdale for us. kerry, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this morning in south florida, blood donation centers are shutdown unless they're like this one now set up to begin testing those blood donations for the zika virus. four new cases of zika have shown up in patients here in both miami-dade counties and in broward counties. scientists believe the vector transmitting the disease may be mosquitos right here in the united states. growing concern this morning that zika is spreading with the discovery of four now cases in south florida, four counties are halting blood collections. the fda wants the blood supply tested to make sure it's not contaminated. health officials are alarmed because none of the new zika patients traveled out of the
7:18 am
country, meaning virus carrying mosquitos here are infecting people or the virus could have been sexually transmitted by someone who had traveled into a zika zone and then returned back to south florida unknowingly infected. >> if it does turn out to be transmitted by mosquitos in this area now, we need to take action. >> reporter: aggressive mosquito control efforts are under way throughout south florida. the florida department of health is going door to door collecting urine samples to see how many people are affected. the danger is most critical for pregnant women. according to the cdc, zika is known to cause a range of birth defects. for pregnant women, it's a frightening prospect. brook rr is 32 weeks along. >> it's scary. i stayed inside for most of my pregnancy. i turned down vacations. i'm trying not to panic too much and wear my bug spray and stay
7:19 am
relatively calm about it. >> reporter: the fda says it's working closely with blood screening companies to make sure they're ready to expand testing as needed. >> we don't know the extent of the infection right now in the community. they want to be overly careful to make sure the blood supply remains safe. >> reporter: the florida governor says this morning that the department of health has concluded that the four cases of zika virus are likely mosquito borne. all blood throughout the south will now be tested including florida, georgia, alabama and south carolina to make sure things are safe. back to you. >> health officials working hard on that situation. and 20 minutes to fix that mess outside.

come together for a final tally. if they're put into a computer, those computers can be hacked. >> reporter: we reached out to voting officials in multiple states. new york says the state has some of the most stringent testing protocols in the nation and voting machines in california are not connected online and the state has extensive certification and testing that goes beyond the federal standards. as for dnc e-mails, what no one knows is how the information made its way to wikileaks. in an interview earlier this week, wikileaks founder julian assange was not giving up his sources. >> the real story is what e-mails contained. they showed collusion at the top of the democratic party. >> with government officials now increasingly convinced of russia's role in the hack, the next big question is what to do about it? there's a debate over how to

8:03 am
important of hillary clinton's life. in it, she acknowledged she has some work to do in terms of restoring voter trust, but he also aimed to draw a sharp contrast with donald trump's go-it-alone vision of leadership. her message, the country is stronger together. against the backdrop of the city why the nation's history was born, hillary clinton made her own history. >> i accept your nomination for president of the united states! >> reporter: the moment clinton stepped onto the stage, she was emotional, pausing to take it all in. she quickly laid out the stakes in her race against donald trump. >> he wants to divide us from the rest of the world and from each other. he wants us to fear the future and fear each other. >> reporter: arguing he's not fit to lead. >> do you really think donald trump has the temperament to be commander in chief? a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons. >> reporter: soon after clinton
8:04 am
finished, trump fired back in a series of tweets. in one writing, hillary's vision is a borderless world where working people have no power, no jobs, no safety. this after clinton laid out her own vision for moving the country forward. >> we will not build a wall. instead, we will build an economy where everyone who wants a good job can get one. and we'll build a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are already contributing. >> reporter: her speech capping a convention aimed in part at reintroducing her to voters, a task clinton took on herself. >> i get it that some people just don't know what to make of me. so let me tell you. the family i'm from, no one had their name on big buildings. >> reporter: clinton is setting her sights on the next chapter, winning the white house.
8:05 am
>> even more important than the history we make tonight is the history we will write together in the years ahead. >> reporter: one of the stated goals of this speech was to reach out to republicans who might not be ready to vote for trump so did that strategy work? clinton will learn more when she hits the road in the key battleground states with tim kaine later today. sheinelle? >> thank you, kristen. florida governor rick scott says the state likely has the first cases of zika transmitted by local mosquitos. no mosquitos in florida have tested positive, but four people in the area likely got it from mosquitos but had not left the mainland u.s. those patients did not require hospitalization. in san diego, one police officer is dead and another is just out of surgery after they were shot overnight. a suspect was also wounded and taken into custody. san diego's police chief says the gunfire broke out as the officers were making a traffic stop. police spent the night searching
8:06 am
for possible additional suspects. the officer who was killed was a husband and a father. police officers in ft. worth, texas, made a courageous rescue that was caught on camera. an armed robbery suspect was stuck in his car after a high-speed pursuit and crash earlier this month. this just released body camera video shows officers struggling to pull the unconscious man from the passenger seat as flames erupted from the car. he suffered minor injuries and was arrested. they say good things come to those who wait. well, in this case, that certainly goes for golfer john sendon trying to save par at the pga championship. this is in new jersey on thursday. his long putt stops right on the lip of the cup and just won't drop. first, he gives it the evil eye. then he slowly circles the hole waiting and waiting. then just when he's ready to give up and tap it in, look at that. some unknown force knocks it in for par. >> where's carl spackler.
