The first night of the Democrat National Convention, Monday, Aug. 17, will feature former first lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Ohio’s former Republican Gov. John Kasich, a source told CNN on Saturday.
The speaking lineup is heralded as a diverse group – a centrist, a left-winger, and a never-Trumper – to highlight Joe Biden’s acceptance of the Democratic presidential nomination in his bid to unseat President Donald Trump.
Other speakers during the four-day convention expected include former President Barack Obama, Biden’s running mate to be determined, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has likely lost her bid to be on the ticket.
Others likely to have a role include Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., according to Politico.
