Biden Expects Democratic Convention To ‘Move Into August’ Due to Coronavirus


Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he “doubts” the Democratic National Committee would have its convention that is currently scheduled to be held in Milwaukee in the middle of July, suggesting the party is “gonna have to move into August” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I doubt whether the Democratic convention is going to be able to be held in mid July, early July,” Biden said in an interview with host Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” Wednesday evening. “I think it’s gonna have to move into August. It’s going to depend on what kind of action is taken between now and the middle of the summer to change this curve.”
