A scaled-back convention for a scaled back campaign? Seems like a good fit, actually, especially with a nominee that tends to wander rhetorically these days. While Republicans try to build up their convention platform into something ever-more spectacular, Democrats now foresee a “scaled-back” national convention in Milwaukee, Fox News reports from sources in the DNC and on Team Biden as well.
One has to wonder, however, just why they’re making this decision. Is this an attempt to contrast their approach to coronavirus concerns against Donald Trump’s, which Democrats and the media are criticizing lately as reckless? Or just a way to keep Biden’s profile low and avoid more damaging gaffes?
Six of one, half-dozen of another …
Joe Biden intends to formally accept the Democratic presidential nomination in person at a scaled-back national party convention that will be held in Milwaukee, Wis., in August.
The former vice president’s campaign and a senior Democratic Party official both confirmed to Fox News that Biden will be attendance in Milwaukee for the final night of the four-day convention, which is scheduled to kick off on Aug. 17. They add that major components of the convention, however, will be held online through virtual events.
