DNC Convention Day 2 Schedule

Tonight’s big attractions: keynote speeches from former President Bill Clinton and former Second Lady and future First Lady Jill Biden.

9 p.m. ET: Speakers include former acting U.S. attorney general Sally Yates, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, former secretary of State John Kerry, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester, and former president Bill Clinton.

Tuesday night will also feature the “Roll Call Across America.” Per the DNC: “We’ll hear from voters, delegates, parents, teachers, small business owners, activists, and leaders in the Democratic Party as they officially cast votes to nominate Joe Biden to become the next president of the United States of America.”

The evening’s “keynote address” will feature 17 of the party’s “rising stars,” including Stacey Abrams, State Senator Raumesh Akbari of Tennessee, Congressman Colin Allred of Texas, Congressman Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania, State Senator Yvanna Cancela of Nevada, former State Representative Kathleen Clyde of Ohio, Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried of Florida, Long Beach, California Mayor Robert Garcia, State Representative Malcolm Kenyatta of Pennsylvania, State Senator Marlon Kimpson of South Carolina, Congressman Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, State Representative Mari Manoogian of Michigan, State Representative Victoria Neave of Texas, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez, State Representative Sam Park of Georgia, State Representative Denny Ruprecht of New Hampshire, and Birmingham, Alabama Mayor Randall Woodfin.

The DNC revealed a more detailed schedule on Tuesday morning that revealed former president Jimmy Carter will appear during a section titled “We Lead From the Oval Office”:


Caroline Kennedy, Former U.S. Ambassador, daughter of President John F. Kennedy

Jack Schlossberg, Grandson of President John F. Kennedy


The Honorable Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States

Rosalynn Carter, Former First Lady of the United States


The Honorable Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States

10 p.m. ET: Keynote speech from former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden.

11 p.m. ET: The evening will conclude with a performance by John Legend.

The events will stream online at the DNC’s website, and on social-media sites such as YouTube and Facebook. You can also tune in the old-fashioned way, on an actual television, but as the New York Times reports, coverage will be limited:

“The major broadcast networks, ABC, CBS and NBC, plan to carry an hour of the convention live each night, from 10 to 11 p.m. on the East Coast. Cable news channels will air the two-hour nightly proceedings in full, but the Democrats’ jampacked schedule poses a risk that local affiliates in swing states could cut away at 11 p.m. if speakers aren’t wrapped up.”

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. The party is afraid of AOC, only giving her 1 minute but uses her lavishly in the advertising.

    Go figure.
