Democratic National Convention In Milwaukee May Have Only 300 Attendees

This year’s Democratic convention is going to be a low-key affair.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will probably be no more than 300 actual attendees with many speeches pre-recorded.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:

Only about 300 expected to attend Democratic National Convention

Next month’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee is expected to draw only a few hundred attendees due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The convention already has been postponed once in hopes the pandemic would ease. Now, however, according to The New York Times, what once was a convention expected to draw more than 50,000 delegates, journalists and VIPs to Milwaukee will draw only about 300.

Democratic officials even told members of Congress and other party leaders not to attend this year’s convention. All of the party’s business will be conducted virtually and online.

The convention is scheduled Aug. 17-20. Presumptive Democratic White House nominee Joe Biden, who is set to announce his choice of a running mate about Aug. 1, is still scheduled to attend the convention.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez is also scheduled to attend. The convention’s slogan has been changed to “Convention Across America.”

This makes the event sound a little less exciting for Democrats, doesn’t it?

Sounds like this is a major let-down for the Bernie folks.
