Details emerged earlier this week about how the Democratic National Convention will be conducted during a pandemic.
Though still held in Milwaukee, it will be on a much smaller scale, with the Democratic party asking state delegations not to travel.
“After careful consideration, we now think that number will be in the high hundreds to low thousands, as opposed to those many thousands of people that were previously scheduling to come,” Joe Solmonese, CEO of 2020 Democratic National Convention, tells WTMJ.
“It’s a significantly smaller number than we had originally hoped.”
Despite the economic impact of the changes, Solmonese believes Milwaukee will still get its chance to shine.
“We’re just as committed as ever to making sure that the eyes of the country are on Milwaukee,” he adds, “and that we really use the opportunity to list up all that’s great about that city and that state.”
