MILWAUKEE — The 2020 Democratic National Convention is set for Milwaukee in July of next year, but nearly half of the United States' delegations have been placed in hotels in northern Illinois, as first reported by our partners at NBC 5 in Chicago.
The hotels closest to Fiserv Forum will go to the delegates who have been big names in the Democratic race and those from swing states including Wisconsin.
Joe Biden (Del.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Corey Booker (N.J.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Bernie Sanders (Vt.) will stay closest to the arena. Pete Buttigieg of Indiana will stay in Wauwatosa.
The 2020 Democratic National Convention was awarded to Milwaukee in the battleground state of Wisconsin in early 2019 in an attempt to win the swing state.
Swing state delegates from Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and Colorado will stay in hotels in Lake County and Rosemont, Illinois.
Delegates will stay in Milwaukee's western suburbs, but there is no report of hotels being selected in Racine, Kenosha, Ozaukee or Sheboygan counties.
