NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The Democratic National Convention kicks off its fourth and final night Thursday, with a lineup that of course includes Democratic presidential nominees Joe Biden, but also a handful of candidates who campaigned again Biden, including Pete Buttigieg, Michael Bloomberg, Cory Booker and Andrew Yang.
The theme of Thursday’s program is "America’s Promise." In describing this theme, the DNC explains, "The measure of a president is the same as the measure of a person: What principles guide them? How do they handle adversity? Being president doesn’t change who you are—it reveals who you are. Joe Biden is a good man who believes in the promise of America, and as president, he will deliver on that promise for all."
“This Time Next Year”A collection of everyday Americans and prominent leaders share where they want to be this time next year—when Joe Biden is president.
