Oklahoma Democratic Party Supports DNC National Convention’s Move to Virtual
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Democratic National Committee announced last night that the Party’s 2020 Nominating Convention will be a virtual convention reducing the need for most delegates to travel yet still fully participate from their own homes or communities. The Oklahoma Democratic Party strongly supports this move.
“The Democratic Party has a long history of caring for health and welfare of Americans,” said Alicia Andrews, Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party. “As difficult as this decision was to make, Oklahoma stands proud of the DNC’s commitment to keeping all delegates, speakers, campaign and convention workers, and the citizens of Milwaukee safe.”
Although plans for the convention are still in development, Andrews said there will still be four nights of national news coverage and that Vice President Biden will accept the Party’s nomination in Milwaukee.
“This is, of course all brand new. From the briefing we received last night, it looks like this is going to be a very exciting, fun convention,” continued Andrews.
