Former Vice President Joe Biden, left, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., right, greeted each other before a Democratic presidential primary debate at CNN Studios in Washington, Sunday, March 15, 2020.

Democrats announced Thursday that they were postponing their presidential nominating convention until August, an unprecedented move that shows how the coronavirus is reshaping the battle for the White House.

The party had hoped that a mid-July convention would give them more time to rally behind a nominee and unify against President Donald Trump. But concerns that large crowds will spread the virus prompted Democrats, including prospective nominee Joe Biden, to press for alternatives.
