THEME: “Leadership Matters.” What that means, according to the DNC:
Leadership means rising to meet the nation’s challenges, not making them worse. To Joe Biden, it’s about putting the country ahead of yourself, and taking on the tough fights even when it’s unpopular. It’s about making sure the government — the military, the judiciary, the scientists, everyone — is working in the national interest, not a president’s political interests. Tuesday’s focus is on the leaders and the experts, the veterans and the activists, all those who seek to unite and not divide, and who step up — not back down — from a fight over what’s right.
9 p.m. ET: Speakers include former acting U.S. attorney general Sally Yates, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, former secretary of State John Kerry, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester, and former president Bill Clinton.
Tuesday night will also feature the “Roll Call Across America.” Per the DNC: “We’ll hear from voters, delegates, parents, teachers, small business owners, activists, and leaders in the Democratic Party as they officially cast votes to nominate Joe Biden to become the next president of the United States of America.”
The evening’s “keynote address” will feature 17 of the party’s “rising stars,” including Stacey Abrams, State Senator Raumesh Akbari of Tennessee, Congressman Colin Allred of Texas, Congressman Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania, State Senator Yvanna Cancela of Nevada, former State Representative Kathleen Clyde of Ohio, Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried of Florida, Long Beach, California Mayor Robert Garcia, State Representative Malcolm Kenyatta of Pennsylvania, State Senator Marlon Kimpson of South Carolina, Congressman Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, State Representative Mari Manoogian of Michigan, State Representative Victoria Neave of Texas, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez, State Representative Sam Park of Georgia, State Representative Denny Ruprecht of New Hampshire, and Birmingham, Alabama Mayor Randall Woodfin.
10 p.m. ET: Keynote speech from former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden.
November 3rd is less than 100 days away, and the Convention is a great time to connect with people who care about this election and pump each other up for the hard work ahead. Together we can win.
See you "at the Convention"!
