DNC Chooses Milwaukee as Its 2020 National Convention City
Seems the Democrats do not want to lose the state of Wisconsin again — as they did in 2016 when Donald Trump took it over Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton recently told a black church audience she lost the state of Wisconsin in 2016 because 40,000 to 80,000 people were turned away from the polls due to their skin color and age.
The Washington Post gave her four Pinocchios for spreading fake news.
Yet it seems the Democrats do not want to lose Wisconsin again, as they did in 2016.
So they are they taking the party to that state.
The Democratic National Committee announced Milwaukee will host the July 13-16, 2020, convention.
It’s the first time the party has held a national convention in the Midwest outside of Chicago since 1916.
Holding the convention in Wisconsin is significant for Democrats after 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton declined to campaign in the state during the general election.
Clinton narrowly lost the state to Trump, which along with small vote deficits in Pennsylvania and Michigan decided the election in his favor.
“After a decade of Republican attacks on working people, labor unions, and communities of color, Democrats saw some of their biggest and most historic gains last year in Wisconsin with the election of Gov. Tony Evers, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, and Attorney General Josh Kaul, and the reelection of Sen. Tammy Baldwin. Today’s announcement signals that the party is doubling down on its winning strategy in this critical battleground state,” the DNC said in a statement. (source: Washington Examiner)

The Democratic National Convention will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is a *terrific* decision by the DNC. And it's the result of a ton of work by Wisconsinites who've been moving heaven & earth to prepare & make the case. Congrats to all. Now let's make it great!
