'For the first time' Wisconsin to host DNC

TEASER: Wisconsin will host the DNC for the first time in history.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DNC CHAIRMAN TOM PEREZ SAYING: "I am thrilled to announce that in 2020, for the first time in history, the Democratic party's National Convention will be held right here in the great state of Wisconsin.

Right here in the city of Milwaukee." Exactly who will emerge as the 2020 Democratic nominee for president is anyone's guess..

But we now know where he or she will accept the nomination.... It's a move Democrats hope will help bolster their chances at taking back key swing states such as Wisconsin that President Donald Trump won in the 2016 election.

It's a nod to lessons learned.

Hillary Clinton, who did not campaign in Wisconsin during the 2016 general election campaign, also lost the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania by narrow margins, helping give Trump the path to victory.

It was a victory Republicans, including then Wisconsin native and then House Speaker Paul Ryan, weren't shy about.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "I think what Donald Trump just pulled off is an enormous political feat." DNC Chairman Tom Perez says the decision to host it in a Midwestern city other than Chicago for the first time in over a century, was motivated by one vision: (SOUNDBITE) (English) DNC CHAIRMAN TOM PEREZ SAYING: "Every single decision I make as DNC chair is motivated by one overriding concern.

How can we win elections and take back our democracy?" The Democratic National Convention will run July 13th to 16th, while the Republican National Convention will be held more than a month later in Charlotte, North Carolina from August 24th through the 27th.
