Milwaukee – This morning, the Democratic National Committee named four finalists for the location of the 2020 DNC Convention: Milwaukee, Denver, Houston and Miami Beach.

Right after the DNC’s announcement, Denver withdrew their bid citing scheduling conflicts.

Statement from Alex Lasry, Chairman of the Milwaukee 2020 DNC Convention Bid Committee:

“Milwaukee is very excited to be chosen as a finalist for the Democratic National Convention in 2020.

Milwaukee has everything the DNC needs to put on a great convention: a brand-new arena, co-located convention space, and plenty of hotel rooms.

Milwaukee knows how to handle big events and we know how to put on a great party. There is no place that will be more affordable for delegates and has better weather in July than Milwaukee.”
