MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The Democratic Party announced it will transition its national convention from taking place entirely in Milwaukee to one spread out across the country.
The Democratic National Convention Committee announced the change in a press release sent Wednesday evening.
Now titled "Convention Across America," the event will still center around the original host city of Milwaukee but feature many other locations.
"Vice President Biden intends to proudly accept his party’s nomination in Milwaukee and take the next step forward towards making Donald Trump a one-term president," said Jen O’Malley Dillon, Campaign Manager, Biden for President. "The city of Milwaukee has been an incredible partner and we are committed to highlighting Wisconsin as a key battleground state at our convention this August."
The event will run Aug. 17-20 with four nights of programming. Milwaukee as well as satellite cities and landmarks across the country will host live broadcasts.
