The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Democratic National Convention, scheduled for July 13-17 in Milwaukee, will be moved to the week of August 17 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

It has not been decided how long the convention will be.

“After a great deal of scenario planning and giving thought to how it is this event can have the greatest impact in the electoral process and the greatest impact in terms of what we can bring to Milwaukee, we felt the best decision, not knowing all the answers, was to delay this,” Democratic National Convention CEO Joe Solmonese told the Journal Sentinel.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
