Biden: A normal convention ’hard to imagine’ as scheduled

By BILL BARROW Associated Press

The coronavirus pandemic is forcing Democrats and Republicans to take a close look at whether they'll be able to move forward as planned this summer with conventions that typically kick off the general election season.

Prospective Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said this week that it's "hard to envision" a normal convention in July in Milwaukee.
