Wells Fargo Center and The Pennsylvania Convention Center
July 25-28 2016

 


The 2016 Democratic National Convention will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between July 25th and 28th, 2016, and current and former Democratic Party leaders will join 4,769 delegates to officially select the presumptive nominee, Hilary Clinton, as the Democratic presidential candidate for November’s general election. This will bring Secretary Clinton a step closer to the White House, fulfilling the predictions of her friends at Wellesley College in Massachusetts all those long years ago.

The journey has not been smooth, and Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders gave her some anxious moments in the second half of the primary race, but she eventually coasted to victory with plenty to spare. The threat of a revolt by Sen. Sanders and his supporters has also largely fizzled out as Democrats coalesced around Secretary Clinton, guaranteeing a unified front at the aptly-named City of Brotherly Love - a huge contrast to the infighting that has plagued the Republican Party. More importantly, the primary season has noticeably tilted the Democratic Party slightly to the left once again after its slow slide to the right over the last three decades.

The first sign of this seismic shift can be seen in the draft of the 2016 Democratic Party platform, which some are already calling the most progressive in history. Aides to Sen. Sanders have also dismissed the notion of floor fights at the convention following the two-day Platform Committee meeting on July 8th and 9th. While candidates are not bound to the party platform, it nevertheless plays an important role in expounding the party’s core values and objectives.

Several respected progressive figures have been invited to speak at the convention, and their speeches will probably reflect the new political alignment of the Democratic Party.

 Democratic Nominee  Hillary Clinton
 
Hillary Clintons’ entry into the 2016 presidential election was never in doubt. While her defeat to President Obama in the 2008 nomination race is a distant memory now, her subsequent gracious and powerful endorsement speech lingers in the minds of many. With her extensive frontline and behind-the-scenes political experience, Secretary Clinton has virtually, and quite comfortably, sealed her status as the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

 Presumptive Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee
Current U.S. Senator and former Governor from Virginia
 Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee Tim Kaine
 
The former Jesuit missionary, law professor and attorney once won a record $100 million judgement against an insurance company for discriminatory lending practices. Despite his successful private practice, the call of public service ultimately proved to be too strong for Sen. Kaine, and he was elected to serve as the Mayor of Richmond in 1998. The father of three would go on to serve as the Lt. Governor of Virginia and Governor of Virginia. Today, Sen. Kaine serves in the U.S. Senate and sits on four committees.
