Sen. Tina Smith addressed Biden supporters at the Nicollet Island DNC viewing party.

Making the best of an extraordinary and unconventional moment, Minnesota Democrats held an outdoor party on a steamy Thursday night to celebrate the nomination of Joe Biden to run against President Donald Trump in November.

The gathering at Nicollet Island in Minneapolis was the only in-person event in Minnesota associated with the Democratic National Convention, which was to be held in Milwaukee before the COVID-19 pandemic pushed much of its programming online, as it has next week's GOP convention.

Minnesota convention delegates, Biden campaign representatives and elected officials, including U.S. Sen. Tina Smith and Minnesota House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, donned their face masks and cautiously mingled outside.
