DNC Communications Director: Convention MUST Happen Because ‘We Are NOT Officially Nominating Biden’

DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa says DNC not officially endorsing Joe Biden yet

Xochitl Hinojosa, communications director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), sparked confusion this week when she admitted on Fox News that it is crucial for the party to hold its convention, because they are “NOT officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump.”

“There’s a real possibility the convention does not happen or it happens in a virtual sense. Is that correct as of today?” Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Hinojosa.

“First of all, our convention has to happen, because we are not officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump,” Hinojosa replied.

“So our convention is happening. There is business that has to happen.”


Breitbart.com reports: Joe Biden (D) officially became the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee following Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) departure from the race, as he was the last challenger standing. Sanders vowed, prior to dropping out, that he would support the eventual Democrat nominee — a promise he fulfilled last month.

“Today I am asking all Americans — I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republican — to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy which I endorse,” Sanders said during a livestream event with the former vice president in April.

“If I am the nominee, which it looks like now you just made me, I am going to need you, not just to win the campaign, but to govern,” Biden replied.

The DNC rescheduled the party’s July convention to August, citing coronavirus-related concerns. This week, the Rules and Bylaws Committee voted to “grant convention organizers in Milwaukee the authority to design an event that won’t require delegates to attend in person amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

The plan, according to DNC Chair Tom Perez, ensures that “every delegate is able to accomplish their official business without putting their own health at risk – whether that be participating in person or by other means to allow for social distancing.”

The move effectively opens the door for a virtual convention.

Hinojosa, as of Thursday evening, had yet to clarify her remark on social media.
