There was never any doubt who the nominee would be, so just have the DNC nominate Biden "officially" before the deadline by whatever means necessary.

Why don't they just pass a law to outlaw voting for Democrats? Turbineguy May 22 #1

Write ins could carry the day but even so I have to believe there is something unconstitutional in this dutch777 May 22 #2
I actually doubt it. The constitution gives the states the right to select electors "in a manner of their own chusing" unblock May 22 #7

If it was an open convention, sure. unblock May 22 #21
If Trump died before the election, don't you think they would move heaven and earth to get the backup nominee Mr.WeRP May 22 #61
If I recall correctly lonely bird May 22 #52
SCOTUS would not allow states to keep Trump off the ballot when he clearly is an Insurrectionist. Mr.WeRP May 22 #59
That ruling sheds little light on this case. unblock May 22 #63
It absolutely does. Only one can be true Mr.WeRP May 22 #82
Nonsense. It's not an either/or because there are many reasons for not qualifying for a ballot unblock May 22 #89

True that. But a bit of a side show, in this case. unblock May 22 #71

I think they objected to the idea of a "provisional" nomination unblock May 22 #47
Just title the zoom meeting "Official Democratic Party Convention" Think. Again. May 22 #73
I'm not understanding how we're in this position in the first place Chakaconcarne May 22 #4
Neither do I! Scheduling the convention before ALL arbitrary state deadlines seems pretty basic! 50 Shades Of Blue May 22 #15
There's an advantage to having a later convention Diraven May 22 #45
I get that, but still! 50 Shades Of Blue May 22 #50
Agreed. TomSlick May 22 #90
And Colorado had to put djt back on its ballots (they took him off since he was an insurrectionist). SWBTATTReg May 22 #5
They haven't gotten away with it unless the Democratic Party doesn't take the state to court jimfields33 May 22 #31
...or work around by having a quick "convention"... Think. Again. May 22 #74
To be honest, I like that idea best. jimfields33 May 22 #85
Yep, I'm thinking that's why the DNC isn't worried about this. Think. Again. May 22 #86
Agree. We're so lucky to be democratic supporters. jimfields33 May 22 #87
