(FOX NEWS) – Monday marks the start of the 2020 Democratic National Convention as the presidential campaign, which has been upended by a pandemic in unprecedented fashion, enters its final stages.
The Democrats’ convention, based with a production center in Milwaukee, will be held almost exclusively remotely, with delegates, officials and speakers participating in a socially-distant manner thanks to the coronavirus. To kick off the four-day event on Monday, Democrats will get the results of some important votes, hold meetings for a variety of caucuses and councils and see several high-profile speakers during the 9 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET primetime event.
Here’s what to watch for on Monday at the Democratic National Convention.
The main draw of the primetime broadcast is the slate of speakers, which Monday will include some of the women who were considered for the running mate slot that eventually went to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., governors who have coordinated the responses of their states during the coronavirus pandemic and the Democratic presidential primary’s runner-up behind Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
The lineup will include: Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.; Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y.; Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-Mich.; Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C.; Convention Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss.; Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La.; Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis.; Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala.; former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio; Sanders and former first lady Michelle Obama.
