Here Are the Really Big Names Speaking at the DNC
The speaker lineup for the DNC is starting to take shape, and it’s already stacked.
The Clinton campaign just announced the headlining speakers for this month’s convention. The speakers are organized around different themes for each day.
For the first day, the theme is “United Together.” Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders and DREAMer Astrid Silva will talk.
The second day is focused on children and families, and will feature Bill Clinton along with Mothers of the Movement, made up of mothers whose children were killed by police. They include Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; and Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis, among many others.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will speak on the third day, the theme of which is “Working Together.”
Then on the fourth and final day, of course, Hillary will speak, along with her daughter Chelsea.
The campaign plans to announce more speakers in the coming days.
While Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate this morning via Twitter, this list doesn’t give any hints as to who Clinton has chosen. That announcement could come any time as well.
The DNC will be held July 25th through the 28th in Philadelphia.
