DNCC Announces Third Night Program for Democratic National Convention
From a press release
2016-07-27

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


PHILADELPHIA - The Democratic National Convention Committee ( DNCC ) announced the program for the third day of the Democratic National Convention being held in Philadelphia from July 25 to July 28.

In Philadelphia, Democrats are laying out the clear stakes in this election — a choice between building walls and tearing people down or an optimistic unifying vision where everyone has a role to play in building our future.

On Wednesday night, speakers will discuss how Hillary Clinton has the experience and steadiness to bring Americans together to get real results for our families. Her strong leadership will deliver economic results for all Americans and keep us safe. While Donald Trump is in over his head and reckless, Hillary can provide the leadership we need for the country we want to be.
