DNC to hold virtual event

Democrats have decided to hold an almost entirely virtual presidential nominating convention Aug. 17–20 in Milwaukee with live broadcasts and online streaming, according to a story from the Associated Press.

Former Vice President Joe Biden plans to accept the presidential nomination in person, but it’s unknown if there will be a significant in-person audience.

The Democratic National Committee said delegates are being asked not to travel to Milwaukee and the votes to nominate Biden, and his yet-to-be-named running mate, will take place virtually.
