2016 Democratic Convention Will Be Late July, But in Philadelphia or Elsewhere?.

The Democratic National Committee on Friday said the convention would take place the week of July 25, 2016. In her statement, Wasserman Schultz said the party is still in negotiations with all three cities, and top officials here in Philadelphia believe a final decision will come either next week or, more likely, in early February. The earlier-than-normal conventions are designed to allow the parties’ next presidential nominees access to more campaign cash and to begin a head-to-head contest looking toward November. In November, the committee narrowed its choice of cities to three: Philadelphia; Brooklyn, N.Y.; and Columbus, Ohio. “This is the next step to finalize where and when we will nominate the 45th president of the United States, highlight the Democratic Party’s agenda of fighting for expanded opportunity and contrast it with the Republican Party’s commitment to the fortunate few,” said Rep.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), the DNC’s chairwoman. “We are still in discussions with three excellent cities and are looking forward to a diverse and inclusive convention that displays our party’s values.” Both parties’ conventions will be held considerably earlier than in previous cycles.
