Democratic National Convention Day 2: What time, what channel; live stream; who is speaking tonight

After a contentious night in Philadelphia, the Democrats are coming back for Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention.

Or, maybe we should call it Round 2.

A rowdy crowd inside of and outside of the Wells Fargo Center created drama for the first day of the convention. Soon-to-be ex-Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was booed by her own state delegates at a breakfast, and Bernie Sanders supporters booed anyone who mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name – including, or maybe especially, those who had supported Sanders, but came out for Clinton on Monday.

Sanders was the last speaker on Monday night, and called for unity in the party before he vowed to support Clinton's historic run for president.

Tuesday will see the always interesting Roll Call vote of states, and former President Bill Clinton will make the case to keep the presidency in the family with his speech in support of his wife tonight.

Also scheduled to speak on Tuesday are the Mothers of the Movement, women whose children were killed because of gun violence, or after encounters with law enforcement officers.
