CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., early Thursday nominated President Obama as the party's standard-bearer.

Obama needed 2,778 votes to be nominated. Roughly 6,000 delegates are seated at this convention.

Mississippi deferred announcing its votes to Ohio, a battleground state, which cast all 188 votes for Obama, putting him over the threshold.
