DNC Crowd – Not 50,000, Maybe Just Hundreds

The crowd for next month’s Democratic National Convention was once anticipated to be about 50 thousand strong.

Now, planners are just talking about a few hundred. Coronavirus first led convention organizers to move it from July to mid-August, then moved most of the activities online. Now, W-I-S-N Television is reporting that convention planners are expecting as few as 300 people to be in Milwaukee for the event. A report out last week suggested former Vice President Joe Biden – the presumed Democratic Party nominee for president – may be the only person to actually speak from Milwaukee during the convention.
