11:40 p.m. ET: President Barack Obama concluded his speech by asking that voters elect Hillary Clinton.
"I ask you to carry her the same way you carried me," he told the crowd. "I’m ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen ... I’m asking you to join me … to elect Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States and show the world we still believe in the promise of the great nation … thank you for this incredible journey, let’s keep it going.”
10:54 p.m. ET: President Barack Obama made his way to the stage, 12 years after his first DNC speech. “While this nation has been tested by war and it's been tested by recession and all manner of challenges, I stand before you again tonight after almost two terms as your president to tell you I am more optimistic about the future of America than ever before,” Obama told the crowd. “How could I not be after all that we've achieved together. After the worst recession in 80 years, we fought our way back. We've seen deficits come down, 401(k)s recover, an auto industry set new records, unemployment reach eight-year lows and our businesses create 15 million new jobs.”
“Through every victory and every setback I’ve insisted that change is never easy … so tonight I’m here to tell you that yes, we’ve still got more work to do … it’s fair to say this is not your typical election … its not just a choice between parties or policies … this is a more fundamental choice about who we are as a people … What we heard in Cleveland [last week] ... was a pessimistic vision … there were no serious resolutions … just blame, anger and hate, and that is not the America I know.”
"There is only one candidate in this race who believes in that future, has devoted her life to that future, a mother and a grandmother who would do anything to help our children thrive, a leader with real plans to break down barriers and blast through glass ceilings and widen the circle of opportunity to every single American," Obama said. "The next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton."
10:18 p.m. ET: VP nominee Tim Kaine urged delegates to not believe anything that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump promises. "We all should feel the Bern, and we should all not want to be burned by the other guy," the senator from Virginia said.
"Trump is a guy who promises a lot but, you may have noticed, he has a way of saying the same two words every time he makes his biggest, he just promises. 'Believe me.' 'It is going to be great, believe me.' 'We are to build a wall and make Mexico pay for, believe me.' ... 'There is nothing suspicious and my tax returns, believe me,'" he later added. "Here's the thing: Most people, when they run for president, they don't just say 'believe me,' they respect you enough to tell you how they will get things done."
9:35 p.m. ET: Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed Hillary Clinton during his speech Monday night. The entrepreneur told the crowd: “We need a president who is a problem solver, not a bomb thrower. Someone who can bring members of Congress together to get big things done, and I know Hillary can do that, because I saw it first-hand.”
Bloomberg also bashed Clinton's opponent Donald Trump. "I'm a New Yorker," he told the crowd. "I know a con when I see one."
9:19 p.m. ET: Vice President Joe Biden took the stage to endorse Hillary Clinton during the Democratic National Convention and gave Michelle Obama a shoutout for her powerful speech on Monday night. "Michelle, I don't know where you are kid, but you are incredible,” Biden told FLOTUS.
The vice president also bashed Clinton’s opponent Donald Trump. “Just listen to me for a second without booing or cheering,” he told the crowd, which immediately grew quiet. “His cynicism is unbounded. His lack of empathy and compassion can be summed up in that phrase he is most proud of making famous: ‘You’re fired.’ I'm not joking. Think about that. … This guy does not have a clue about the middle class. Not a clue.”
The crowd at Wells Fargo Center then repeatedly chanted “Not a clue! Not a clue!”
8:40 p.m. ET: Admiral John Hutson slammed Donald Trump’s earlier request that Russia hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. "He personally invited Russia to hack us,” Hutson said during his speech. “That's not law and order, it's criminal intent."
7:32 p.m. ET: Aliens actress Sigourney Weaver called for Americans to "do what is right" to combat climate change, and Governor of California Jerry Brown echoed her sentiments, attacking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his position on the issue. "Donald Trump says global warming is a hoax," Brown said. "I say Trump is a fraud."
Cue the president! Day three of the Democratic National Convention kicked off at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 27. President Barack Obama is expected to speak around 10 p.m. ET, tying together day three’s theme of “Working Together.” Stay with Us Weekly all night long for big moments from the event, and watch the livestream above for full coverage.
According to the DNC’S website, Wednesday’s speakers will discuss how Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has “the experience and steadiness to bring Americans together to get real results for our families.” They will also talk about how while “Donald Trump is in over his head and reckless, Hillary can provide the leadership we need for the country we want to be.”
Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz revealed on Tuesday that Obama is expected to “talk about what the country has accomplished” and “what the grit, ingenuity and determination of the American people have achieved over the last eight years.”
"Whether that's coming back from the brink of economic collapse to the longest stretch of private-sector job growth in the nation’s history, or whether that's changing the way the world views the United States for the better,” Schultz continued during a briefing at the White House.
The 44th president’s speech will follow Vice President Joe Biden and Clinton’s vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s speeches. Clinton’s bevy of celebrity supporters will also be on hand, including an appearance and speech from actress Angela Bassett and a performance by Lenny Kravitz.
