Democratic National Convention postponed amid coronavirus crisis

The Democratic National Convention, which was scheduled for July, has been postponed to August amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

DNC Convention Committee CEO Joe Solmonese said that delaying the convention is the best action to take.

"In our current climate of uncertainty, we believe the smartest approach is to take additional time to monitor how this situation unfolds so we can best position our party for a safe and successful convention," Solomnese said.

He said he is sure, however, that the delay will not hinder the Democratic nominee from winning the White House come November.

"I'm confident our convention planning team and our partners will find a way to deliver a convention in Milwaukee this summer that places our Democratic nominee on the path to victory in November."
