Chicago Politicians Promise Spectacular 2024 DNC

CHICAGO — With Chicago’s skyline glistening in the background, local Democrats took a victory lap Wednesday after landing the 2024 Democratic National Convention.

The campaign to win the convention for Chicago began in late 2021, with Governor JB Pritzker, Senator Tammy Duckworth, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot leading the charge. They promised the selection committee and President Joe Biden — who is expected to be nominated for a second term during festivities — two things: a spectacular showcase and Chicago standing as a shining example of progressive politics.
