The Democratic National Convention is going to a mostly virtual event this year, with few people attending in person.
One man who definitely won’t be there is the party’s nominee, Joe Biden, who will accept the nomination in Delaware.
Hillary blew off Wisconsin in 2016. How did that work out?
The Federalist reports:
Joe Biden Will Be Skipping Wisconsin — Just Like Hillary
Democrat National Convention officials announced Wednesday that Joe Biden has decided to skip out on the Milwaukee convention next week due to the Wuhan coronavirus. Instead, Biden will accept his party’s nomination in his home state of Delaware.
In a statement, DNC chair, Tom Perez, affirmed:
From the very beginning of this pandemic, we put the health and safety of the American people first. We followed the science, listened to the doctors and public health experts, and we continued making adjustments to our plans in order to protect lives. That’s the kind of steady and responsible leadership America deserves.
Wisconsin is a key battleground state in the upcoming 2020 election, with the most recent polling showing it is a toss-up. In 2016, Hillary Clinton lost in Wisconsin by less than one point (46.5 to 47.2%). While Hillary never visited Wisconsin during her campaign, candidate Trump visited six times.
This could be a big mistake.
LOL. Joe Biden’s handlers won’t let him attend the Democratic National Convention, but he’s totally capable of being President of the United States, commander in chief, and leader of the free world.
Give me a freaking break.

News: Biden will not travel to Milwaukee for the Democratic National Convention.
Because he’s very, totally, completely vigorous, healthy, knows where he is, & is absolutely capable of taking on the high-stress, 24/7 demands of being President. Right? Who actually believes that? pic.twitter.com/s3dEnsHbSr
