The Democratic Party officially delayed their national convention Thursday over Coronavirus fears; postponing the event until at least August and possibly beyond.
“The convention committee said the event will be held the week of Aug. 17, in Milwaukee, Wis. It was originally slated for July 13-16,” reports Fox News.
“In our current climate of uncertainty, we believe the smartest approach is to take additional time to monitor how this situation unfolds so we can best position our party for a safe and successful convention. During this critical time, when the scope and scale of the pandemic and its impact remain unknown, we will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of health care professionals and emergency responders,” Joe Solmonese, CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee, said in a statement.
“I have always believed that American innovation and ingenuity shine brightest during our darkest days, and for that reason, I’m confident our convention planning team and our partners will find a way to deliver a convention in Milwaukee this summer that places our Democratic nominee on the path to victory in November.”

“The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former Vice President Joe Biden will win the commonwealth of Virginia, beating Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in a key, delegate-rich state. But Sanders is heavily favored to win his home state of Vermont, although we do not yet have enough data to project him the winner,” reports the Fox News Live Blog Team.
BREAKING NOW: Joe Biden Wins the Alabama Democratic Primary
From the Fox News Desk:
“BREAKING: It’s 8 p.m. and polls have now closed in four more Super Tuesday States – Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts and Oklahoma.
The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former Vice President Joe Biden will win the state of Alabama, racking up his third victory of the night – the other two being Virginia and North Carolina. But it is too early to call the other states, including Massachusetts, where home state Senator Elizabeth Warren is surprisingly locked in a three-way race with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Voting was supposed to have ended in Tennessee at 8, but deadly tornadoes prompted state officials to keep some polls open later. So Fox News will refrain from making a projection for now.”
