“I am thrilled that Democrats will take the stage in Chicago to share our party’s vision and values,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison said last week.
“The Midwest reflects America and will give Democrats an opportunity to showcase some of President Biden and Vice President Harris’s most significant accomplishments for American families.”
A number of key figures within the Democratic Party are expected to be in attendance, including Vice President Kamala Harris and California Governor Gavin Newsom. Not to be forgotten, former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama may also be out and about during the event. The former Illinois lawmaker took to Twitter to celebrate the DNC’s decision to put its next convention in Chicago.
“There’s no place like Chicago! Michelle and I are thrilled to have the Democratic National Convention return to our hometown next year,” the former President tweeted.
During next year’s convention, the Democratic Party will determine its nominee for President. Despite competition from author Marianne Williamson, President Joe Biden is the runaway favorite to earn the party’s nomination in his bid for reelection.
