Presidential candidate Joe Biden will not be travelling to Milwaukee this month to accept the Democratic nomination at the party convention, due to concerns about the coronavirus.
That’s what two people who are familiar with the travel plans say.
Biden planned to attend the convention and deliver a speech, but his campaign recently dropped those plans. The Biden campaign failed to comment on the travel plans.
The nomination conventions for both parties have been drastically reduced due to the pandemic.
The Republican Party has switched locations twice, and President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he is “likely” to deliver his acceptance speech from the White House.
The Democrats have planned an almost entirely virtual convention, but Biden still expected to travel to Milwaukee to deliver the formal speech.
