The Democratic National Committee is close to deciding on a city to host their 2020 convention, but sources told Politico on Tuesday that Miami Beach is out of contention.

“Houston and Milwaukee are the only viable candidates right now,” an unnamed DNC member who had spoken with members of the site committee told Politico. This was confirmed by five unnamed Democrats who had knowledge of the selection process.

The anonymous DNC member cited “the weather, the logistics. Also, the imagery. What does the party want to portray from its convention? Do you want bikinis on the beach? Or do you want people in the heartland or a diversity of people in Texas?”

Jess O’Connell, the head of the committee that’s picking the convention site, told Politico that "the DNC is conducting site selection visits with experts in various fields, including housing, transportation, infrastructure, security, accessibility, finance, and arena production logistics. The DNC will then make a determination after these visits are completed about which city is best situated to host the 2020 convention."
