MILWAUKEE --  The Democratic National Committee announced Wednesday thefour finalists for the location of the 2020 DNC Convention.

The four final cities being considered include Milwaukee, Denver, Houston and Miami Beach. However, right after the DNC’s announcement, Denver withdrew their bid citing scheduling conflicts.

Alex Lasry, Chairman of the Milwaukee 2020 DNC Convention Bid Committee, released the following statement on the Democratic National Committee announcement:

“Milwaukee is very excited to be chosen as a finalist for the Democratic National Convention in 2020.
Milwaukee has everything the DNC needs to put on a great convention: a brand-new arena, co-located convention space, and plenty of hotel rooms. Milwaukee knows how to handle big events and we know how to put on a great party. There is no place that will be more affordable for delegates and has better weather in July than Milwaukee.”

The host city is expected to be announced in early 2019.
