Biden, Harris to deliver Democratic convention speeches from Delaware

The speculation over where former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver the biggest speech of his half-century-long political career is over.

Biden’s campaign confirmed to FeedLine.net on Thursday that he’ll deliver his Democratic National Convention presidential nomination acceptance speech from the Chase Center, a convention center located in his hometown of Wilmington, Del.

BIDEN SCRAPS PLANS TO TRAVEL TO MILWAUKEE FOR DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

The presumptive Democratic nominee is scheduled to give his address in prime time next Thursday, Aug. 20.

The campaign also confirmed that Biden's newly named running mate – Sen. Kamala Harris of California – will deliver her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech from the same location one night earlier – on Wednesday, Aug 19.

The convention – which will be a nearly entirely virtual confab due to health concerns regarding large gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic – will still be anchored in Milwaukee. But the past few months party officials dramatically downsized the convention, telling the nearly 5,000 delegates and Democratic members of Congress and elected state officials not to attend the confab in person.

Even though most of the convention will be held nearly entirely online, the plan this summer was for Biden to travel to Milwaukee and accept his party’s presidential nomination and deliver his address in person. But last week, Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez announced that Biden would stay home and give his speech in Delaware.

FOX NEWS SPOTS BIDEN MAKING UNANNOUNCED TRIP TO NEARBY CONVENTION CENTER

Two days after the announcement by Perez, FeedLine.net witnessed Biden making an unannounced trip to the Chase Center. The former vice president’s campaign declined to offer details on the purpose of Biden’s more than two-hour visit to the convention center.

Biden’s previous stop at the Chase Center was on July 15, when he gave a major address to unveil his proposals to combat climate change.

TRUMP SAYS HE'LL DELIVER HIS CONVENTION SPEECH FROM GETTSYBURG BATTLEFIELD OR WHITE HOUSE

President Trump is scheduled to deliver his renomination acceptance speech a week later, when the Republican National Convention is held. Like the Democrats, the Republicans will now hold a nearly entirely virtual convention.

The president said on Monday that his reelection campaign has “narrowed” the location for where he will deliver his address to two locations – the Gettysburg battlefield in Pennsylvania or the White House.

Or (another similitude) is that of a rain-laden cloud from the sky: In it are zones of darkness, and thunder and lightning: They press their fingers in their ears to keep out the stunning thunder-clap, the while they are in terror of death.
