Democratic National Committee Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa said the party is not “officially nominating Joe Biden.”

During a Thursday appearance on Fox News, Hinojosa told anchor Bill Hemmer that the party must hold its convention because of its plans to not endorse the former vice president. 

“First of all, our convention has to happen, because we are not officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump,” Hinojosa told Hemmer, who asked for an update on whether the convention will take place. “So our convention is happening. There is business that has to happen.”

The DNC had rescheduled its July convention to August because of the coronavirus outbreak. This week, the Rules and Bylaws Committee agreed to give organizers in Milwaukee the permission to design an event that won’t require delegates to attend in person. 

Biden has been presumed to be the party's nominee since Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race.
