Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez and his team have hit the ground running in Milwaukee planning the 2020 presidential nominating convention.

Perez stopped by the Newsroom Pub in downtown Milwaukee Tuesday afternoon, and spoke to the media while there. Perez says already the DNC is working on a number of logistics. He says there’s a lot of work to do, but that’s always the case when preparing for a convention. He says he cannot underscore enough the importance of the convention.

“We got 433 more days until the most important convention of our lifetime. And we have less than 600 days until the most important election of our lifetime. So we’re not only preparing for the convention here in Milwaukee, but we’re also making sure that we are investing and organizing in Wisconsin and frankly throughout the country,” Perez says.

The DNC convention is scheduled for July 13-16 of 2020. Around 50,000 visitors are expected.
