Tom Perez says Wisconsin to host DNC

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Democratic Party on Monday picked Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to host the 2020 nominating convention to formally select its candidate for U.S. president, four years after Hillary Clinton narrowly lost the Midwestern state to Republican Donald Trump.

Clinton, who did not campaign in Wisconsin during the 2016 general election campaign, also lost the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania by narrow margins, helping give Trump the path to victory.

The Democratic National Convention will run July 13-16, the first time the party will hold it in a Midwestern city other than Chicago in over a century, the party said in a statement.

The party had also considered Miami and Houston as host cities.

While presidential nominees from both major U.S. parties often had enough delegates well before their conventions in recent election cycles, the events play an important role by providing a televised national forum to showcase their message and highlight up-and-coming political personalities.

More than a dozen Democrats have announced that they are seeking the nomination in the state-by-state voting contests that kick off in Iowa in February 2020.

The unusually crowded and diverse field includes five women serving in the U.S. Senate and the party's first openly gay candidate.
