Biden to accept nomination at pared-down Milwaukee convention

The big picture: Former Vice President Joe Biden is still set to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination in Milwaukee this summer, but organizers are rebranding the event as a “Convention Across America” — with four nights of programming from Aug. 17-20 broadcast from various satellite cities and led by Emmy-award winning producer Ricky Kirshner.

Details: The convention will be moved from Fiserv Forum to the Wisconsin Center to more appropriately fit the smaller crowd sizes.

“Specifics regarding delegation representation on the convention floor will be provided after public health officials complete their assessment of the trajectory and impact of the coronavirus pandemic and determine how many people can safely gather in person later this summer,” the DNC said in a statement.
