Democrats Delay National Convention

This is unfortunate, but understandable.

Democrats announced Thursday that they were postponing their presidential nominating convention until August, an unprecedented move that shows how the coronavirus is reshaping the battle for the White House.

The party had hoped that a mid-July convention would give them more time to rally behind a nominee and unify against President Donald Trump. But concerns that large crowds will spread the virus prompted Democrats, including prospective nominee Joe Biden, to press for alternatives.

“In our current climate of uncertainty, we believe the smartest approach is to take additional time to monitor how this situation unfolds so we can best position our party for a safe and successful convention,” said Democratic convention CEO Joe Solmonese.

Milwaukee will still host the convention, which is now scheduled for the week of Aug. 17. Republicans are sticking with their plan to meet in Charlotte, North Carolina, a week later to renominate Trump.

    Like idea of clown car being delayed. We can take extra month to decide if Biden knows where or when he is.

    Kevin, keep up.  “Clown car” is used when you have lots of candidates.

    Seems like there are lots of candidates given all the liberal talk to jettison Biden.

    The funny part will be when Biden does not even realize it.

    Which GOP clown were you cheering for, back in ’16?

    what does that have to do with topic at hand? It is clear I am a converted Trump supporter.  He has surprised me by how well he has done as President.
