Joe Biden will not travel to the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee

Democratic National Committee announced Wednesday Joe Biden would not travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to accept the Democratic presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention due to concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic.

Biden will accept his nomination virtually from his home state of Delaware, and the other scheduled speakers will also address the convention remotely. The DNC announcement, in effect, makes the event all-virtual.

Biden told attendees of a virtual fundraiser Wednesday afternoon that he felt the move was "the right thing to do."
