The Democrat National Committee (DNC) has selected Chicago, Illinois, as the location for the 2024 convention. Joe Biden called Governor JB Pritzker earlier this morning and informed him of the selection.
It’s an interesting development as most of the betting money would have predicted the Democrat convention toward Atlanta, Georgia. However, if you factor in the unspoken influence and importance of Chicago Jesus, et al,… well, then things take a more fulsome background.
According to the Chicago Sun Times the United Center will be the primary venue for nomination events and daytime business will be conducted at the McCormick Place Convention Center. The DNC convention is scheduled for August 19-22, 2024.
CHICAGO – The Democratic National Committee selected Chicago to host the 2024 Democratic National Convention, the Sun-Times has learned, with the city beating bids from Atlanta and New York.
The convention will take place Aug. 19-22 next year. It is expected to draw between 5,000 and 7,000 delegates and alternates and attract up to 50,000 visitors to Chicago.
Evening events will be at the United Center — the main site of the 1996 Democratic convention in Chicago — with daytime business to be conducted at the McCormick Place Convention Center, the location of the 2012 NATO Summit. Delegates will be housed in about 30 hotels in Chicago.
