Massachusetts Democrats To Cancel Convention

Apr 3, 2020

The Massachusetts Democratic Party's 2020 convention was scheduled for May 30th in Lowell.

The Massachusetts Democratic Party is expected to cancel the party convention scheduled for May 30th because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The party’s state committee is scheduled to meet remotely on Saturday and act on a recommendation from party chairman Gus Bickford to cancel this year’s convention.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill and Western New England University political science professor Tim Vercellotti discuss the significance of the convention cancellation.
