Democratic National Convention Coming to Milwaukee

Following news that DNC Chair Tom Perez had selected Milwaukee to host its 2020 national convention, Martha Laning, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, offered the following response: “We couldn’t be more thrilled that the DNC has chosen Milwaukee to host its 2020 convention. From the lakeshore to its bustling city streets, Milwaukee is a vibrant, working-class city that represents so much of what makes our nation great. We’re honored to have the opportunity to share our great city with the nation, and we can’t wait to welcome Democrats next July. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime economic opportunity for Milwaukee and its citizens. With the collaboration of Milwaukee’s corporate community, the nonprofit sector, the small business community and engaged Milwaukeeans, we are confident Milwaukee 2020 will be a world-class event that makes Wisconsinites proud. The work starts today!”
