Democratic Party of Milwaukee County calls for 2024 DNC convention – WDJT

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — The Executive Board of the Democratic Party of Milwaukee County is calling on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to choose Milwaukee for the 2024 convention.

In a statement released Monday, Aug. 24, the Democratic Party of Milwaukee County responded to the start of the 2024 DNC city selection process. Milwaukee is one of over 20 cities being asked to apply for the convention.

You can read the full statement below:

“Today we learned that Milwaukee is one of 20+ cities being asked to apply for the 2024 Democratic National Convention. Hosting the DNC is no small feat, and this massive honor boosts a city both politically and economically. Despite the fact that Milwaukee ‘hosted’ in 2020, we missed out on the critical time to shine on the national stage.

Milwaukee was able to not only persist and succeed in a virtual environment, but overcome history and flip Wisconsin back to blue in 2020 and deliver the election for President Joe Biden. Since then, our city brought home an NBA Championship (#BucksInSix), we’ve spent every day helping Gov. Evers protect his veto, and we will oust Ron Johnson in 2022 and defend Sen. Baldwin in 2024.

We should not have to make the case for why Milwaukee would be an excellent location for the DNC in 2024 — we already did that just a few years ago. Instead, we simply ask the selection committee to follow the precedent of so many other postponed events and follow through on your national commitment to our state.

Milwaukee welcomes you back, and we urge you to choose our city quickly so we can get back to work electing Democrats up-and-down the ticket and planning the best convention possible.”
