Democrats planning for online national convention

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (WNAX) – The Democratic National Committee announced that the party’s National Convention, originally planned for Milwaukee on Aug. 1720, would be held online due to the coronavirus.

Rick Weiland of Sioux Falls, an at large delegate for Joe Biden, says he thinks the convention can work that way.

Weiland says he hasn’t seen all the meeting details, yet.

Weiland says the convention is usually a nationally broadcast show to start the presidential campaigns.

South Dakota Democrats will send 21 delegates and three alternates to the convention.
