Former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun, the nation’s first Black female senator, cast Illinois’ votes for former Vice President Joe Biden during the Democratic National Convention’s roll call Tuesday night, saying the presumptive Democratic nominee has a plan to “help more people of color achieve the American dream of owning a home.”

“Discrimination has denied too many black Americans the chance to own a home and build wealth,” Moseley Braun said moments before casting the Illinois delegation’s votes.

“Joe Biden has a plan to end racist lending practices and help more people of color achieve the American dream of owning a home. This isn’t just about racial justice. It’s about strong communities, and more economic security for working families.”

Moseley Braun cast 122 votes for Biden, and 59 for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the second night of the virtual Democratic convention.

The Democratic National Convention this year is a virtual production since the COVID-19 pandemic led party officials to cancel all in-person plans in Milwaukee, in the battleground state of Wisconsin. Biden was nominated officially on Tuesday night with a rapid-fire series of video votes cast from all 50 states and seven territorial delegations.
