The Democratic Convention for this year is expected to air just two hours of prime time programming each night 9-11p during convention night Aug 17-20. Is that enough time? Both parties will be vastly different than previous years due to state restrictions because of the coronavirus. The Democrats announced some of their plans this week including honorary chairs House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer; and Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the permanent convention chair. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy; Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.; Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del.; Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett; Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms; and Rep. Tony Cárdenas, D-Calif., will all serve as permanent co-chairs.
The Vice-Presidential choice will speak on Wednesday night while presumptive Presidential candidate Joe Biden will give his acceptance speech on Thursday evening. The convention has been moved to a smaller location already and strict guidelines are in place for the few that will be in attendance - daily COVID-19 testing, self-isolation periods before entering the convention hall, and requirements of masks, with other personal protective equipment strongly recommended.
