Sen. Bernie Sanders, in a bid to bridge the Democratic Party’s divide between his backers and supporters of Hillary Clinton, moved Tuesday to give Clinton the party’s presidential nomination by acclamation.

His motion at the Democratic National Convention came after a nearly two-hour roll call vote and was greeted with chants of “Bernie! Bernie!”

The Vermont senator had waited 15 months to watch his delegates cast ballots for him at the convention.

He had hoped that he would be the candidate accepting the Democratic nomination in Philadelphia. But during his speech to the convention on Monday, Sanders told his delegates he was looking forward to their votes, even while urging them to help Clinton defeat GOP nominee Donald Trump in November.

Vermont went last in the roll call of states. After all of Clinton’s and Sanders’ delegate numbers had been announced, Sanders said, “I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party.” He kissed his wife Jane and waved to the cheering crowd.
