The move comes after prospective nominee Joe Biden said he didn't think it was possible to hold a normal convention in July because of the coronavirus.

Biden made his statement in an interview Wednesday with NBC late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon. Biden noted in a separate interview Tuesday that Democrats “have more time” to figure things out.

The viral pandemic is forcing Democrats and Republicans to take a close look at at their summer conventions, which typically kick off the general election season.

Republicans are expressing confidence they can pull off their convention as scheduled in late August.
