Sen. Durbin Weighs in on Summer Conventions

Illinois' senior U.S. Senator says it's a bad idea to host conventions and rallies this summer leading up to the November election because of the coronavirus pandemic.


Senator Dick Durbin says he hopes his party makes the right choice when it comes to the Democratic National Convention. Durbin spoke with WJBC's Scott Miller.



The Democratic National Convention is supposed to start in Milwaukee in two months.


The Republican National Committee announced last week it will hold part of its summer convention in Jacksonville, Florida. President Trump demanded the event be moved from Charlotte, North Carolina after a rift with Democratic leaders in that state surrounding social distancing rules.
