"Madame Secretary, on behalf of the state of Florida -- the great Sunshine State, the home of Senator Bill Nelson, the state that went blue for President Obama and it's going to go blue for Hillary Clinton -- I proudly cast 72 votes for Senator Bernie Sanders and 163 votes for the first woman president of the United States of America, Hillary Clinton."
