Time Wisconsin delegates prepare to watch DNC from home

Time Wisconsin delegates prepare to watch DNC from home

The 17-person keynote spreads the spotlight typically used to highlight one person as millions are expected to tune in to the scheduled formal nomination of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Joe Biden eventually went on to win several state primaries and caucuses shortly after which led to Bernie Sanders ending his presidential campaign on April 8, and endorsing him for president.

Sanders made it clear that he viewed Biden as the party's nominee, but that doesn't mean that Biden is automatically the official Democratic candidate.

The Massachusetts Democratic Party plans to host a Democratic National Convention watch party at Suffolk Downs next Wednesday. If Biden secures 1,991 pledged delegates at the DNC, which now seems likely, he will be the official nominee.

Like everyone else, delegates from Wisconsin will be watching at home.

"The NMI is a melting pot and showcasing our diversity is what makes the Democratic Party a party of inclusion. I hope you'll join me today in celebrating and then commit to building an even better future", she tweeted on Saturday.

Not only are delegates watching online, but they're also casting their votes online. The California Democrat went on to say that this inspired her mother "to scream and shout in the streets of Oakland at the heights of the Civil Rights movement", adding that it was during these protests when her parents had met for the first time.

Other premium ticket packages are available starting at $500 and going up to $5,000, which comes with recognition in a commemorative delegate book, daily invitations to virtual DNC events during the week of the convention and a virtual hosting role with the delegation.

"I still wanted to be part of it", Rosen said.

The 2020 Democratic National Convention will be anchored in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 17-20.

Also speaking during the keynote will be Navajo Nation president Jonathan Nez; Nevada State Senator Yvanna Cancela, who is of Cuban descent and helped engineer Biden's second-place finish in that closely-contested state's Democratic caucus; Florida's agriculture commissioner, Nikki Fried, who is the first woman to hold that position; and Representative Conor Lamb, who won a Pennsylvania "swing" district that helped Democrats seize control of the House of Representatives in 2018.

At the convention, the Democratic Party also adopts the official party platform as well as the rules and procedures governing party activities, including the nomination process for presidential candidates in the next election cycle.
