Presidential Candidate Joe Biden will not travel to Milwaukee to accept the Democrat nomination for president.
According to The Hill:
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden will not travel to Milwaukee to accept the party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention due to concerns about the surging coronavirus.
Biden will instead accept the nomination from his home state of Delaware.
The development marks the latest impact the pandemic has had on the party nominating process in the U.S. ahead of November’s general election.
Last month, DNC Secretary Jason Rae contacted delegates and described the process for the convention, noting that the planning committee “concluded that state delegations should not plan to travel to Milwaukee and official convention business will be conducted remotely.”
The location where President Trump will accept the nomination remains in limbo as well.
