Amy Klobuchar to be the face of Minnesota in a largely virtual Democratic convention
August 17, 2020
The Democratic National Convention that begins Monday in Milwaukee will include roughly 80 delegates from Minnesota, but few if any of them will actually make the trip to nominate Joe Biden for president.
Instead of the usual spectacle of confetti, hobnobbing and balloon drops, the convention will take place mostly in the virtual landscape of cyberspace, relegating all but the party's most high-profile figures to supporting roles at home.
Speeches will be streamed live during truncated two-hour evening programs, including one scheduled Monday night by Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a former Democratic rival for the 2020 presidential nomination.
