Democratic National Convention‘s first night is currently expected to bring a message of unity featuring former first lady Michelle Obama including Bernie Sanders and former Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, according to a source who has seen current convention plans.
The speakers represent a wide political spectrum for supporting former vice president and Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The former first lady is wildly popular across the Democratic Party. Sanders is a key leader of the left-wing of the Democratic Party while Kasich ran for the GOP nomination for president in 2016.
The convention will also include Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren’s remarks on Wednesday, Aug. 19, a Democratic official familiar with the convention schedule confirmed to CNN.
The rest of the speaking schedule for the 2020 Democratic National Convention remains in flux as officials work to fill the schedule and adjust to the event going virtual.
This week Democrats announced that presumptive nominee Biden and his running mate — who has yet to be announced — would not travel to Milwaukee after all, due to safety concerns related to Coronavirus. Instead, Biden will accept the nomination from Delaware.
