Democratic National Convention May Be Cancelled, Top Dem Leaders Say

Published

on

With many events cancelled and social distancing guidelines in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus, top democrats are signaling that more than likely the Democratic National Convention will be cancelled ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Fox News is reporting.

“I’m not sure we’re going to have a convention,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., a top ally of former Vice President Joe Biden, told Fox News.

Cleaver added, “I think both parties are very likely, I hope, to agree on postponing the convention or doing something that won’t bring thousands of people together to kill each other ultimately with COVID-19.”

Biden remains the party’s leading candidate. Earlier this week, however, Biden told MSNBC that he doesn’t “envision” the convention going on as planned with the current crisis.

“I think the DNC and the RNC both have to evaluate all of their options,” Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., told Fox News. “But we need to pray that we get through this quickly, but we also need to very carefully consider any large gatherings for the next year.”

The convention is set for July 13-16 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Ahead of the event, the Convention has put out several statements indicating that they are monitoring the situation closely and will make decision to ensure “health, safety, and well-being” of attendees.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
