Joe Biden to Accept Democratic Presidential Nomination in Delaware. The Democratic National Convention (DNC) had previously scheduled the former vice president to be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. According to the DNC Committee, the change is due to COVID-19. From the very beginning of this pandemic, we put the health and safety of the American people first. We followed the science, listened to doctors and public health experts, and we continued making adjustments to our plans in order to protect lives, DNC Chair Tom Perez, via statement. That's the kind of steady and responsible leadership America deserves. And that's the leadership Joe Biden will bring to the White House, DNC Chair Tom Perez, via statement. Sources tell CNN that the DNC Committee and Biden campaign decided that speakers should avoid Milwaukee as well. The fear of community spread in Milwaukee, with media, production teams and party officials was just getting to be too much. We don't want to risk anyone's health for this, Democratic official, via CNN. With the new changes, it appears the Democratic National Convention will almost be completely virtual. According to CNN, the convention starts on August 17 and ends on the 20th. Sources add that once Biden chooses a vice presidential running mate, he'll give a speech at an unknown location
