If so, this particular patient had a lot of contributing factors to its demise. For public consumption, both major political parties claim that they plan to hold their national conventions as now scheduled and in the traditional format.

DNC chair Tom Perez insisted as recently as this past Sunday that Democrats still plan on their big party in Milwaukee. Perez told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s This Week that he can’t wait to showcase Joe Biden and other Democratic candidates to a national audience:
RADDATZ: Mr. Perez, just quickly, do you still expect to hold an in-person convention?
PEREZ: We do. And we’re not going to put our public health head in the sane, but I’m optimistic that we can do so, because we’ve put it off for five weeks.
We’re working with all of the public health experts, state, federal, local. And I’m excited about Milwaukee. I’m excited about Wisconsin. I’m excited about this election. And I’m excited about making sure that Joe Biden has an opportunity to show what he’s fighting for.
