Democratic National Convention Live Stream: Watch 2016 DNC Online!
The Democratic National Convention kicks off Monday in Philadelphia, and Gossip Cop has a live stream available online. Watch day one of the 2016 DNC below!
The first day’s theme is “United Together,” and will feature two big name speakers. First Lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton’s former rival for presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, will be supporting the presumptive nominee. Some additional politicians and public figures who are set to take the convention stage are Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy, and Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal.
There will also be a handful of labor leaders, legislators, activists and advocates of various causes close to Clinton’s heart who will speak in favor of the Democratic candidate. However, the event won’t be without controversy, as it was announced Sunday that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, will be resigning from her position after the DNC.
The situation comes after a series of leaked emails revealed that Schultz and other party leaders were biased against Sanders and took measures to secure Clinton the nomination. Clinton’s camp announced on Monday that Schultz won’t be appearing on stage at all during the convention, but it remains to be seen if and how the situation will be addressed at the four-day event.
Day one of the DNC is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Watch the Democratic National Convention in the live stream below!
