Biden To Be Nominated ‘Virtually’?

Joe Biden

( – In a new humiliation for Joe Biden and the left, the Democratic Party has come up with a new trick to save the president from street protests and a failure to observe a ballot registration deadline in Ohio by deciding that he will be officially nominated as the party’s presidential candidate “virtually.”

Biden’s nomination will be secured through a virtual roll call before the party’s formal convention in Chicago this August, AP reports, cited by Newsmax.

This strategic decision ensures his presence on Ohio’s November ballot and minimizes potential disruptions from protesters, the report notes.

The Democratic National Convention, typically the platform for such nominations, will occur after the August 7 deadline for Ohio’s ballot. The convention is slated for August 19-22.

In recent years, Ohio lawmakers have adjusted deadlines for candidates from both major parties, although this has not yet occurred for Biden. A rare special session was convened by Governor Mike DeWine to address this issue.

The virtual format, mirroring the one used in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will allow Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to receive the formal endorsement of their party.

This approach also aims to prevent any unforeseen incidents during the highly orchestrated convention in Chicago, which might otherwise lead to public embarrassment for Biden, who has been criticized by some party activists for his stance on Israel’s war with the terrorist group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The Democratic National Committee has not specified the exact date for the virtual roll call, expected shortly after a June 4 committee vote on proposed changes to the roll call process.

“Joe Biden will be on the ballot in Ohio and all 50 states, and Ohio Republicans agree. But when the time has come for action, they have failed to act every time, so Democrats will land this plane on our own,” said Jaime Harrison, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

“Through a virtual roll call, we will ensure that Republicans can’t chip away at our democracy through incompetence or partisan tricks and that Ohioans can exercise their right to vote for the presidential candidate of their choice,” Harrison added.

As the special session convened, discussions between the Ohio House and Senate were ongoing, led by State Rep. Bill Seitz and State Sen. Rob McColley, both Republicans, with no resolution as of yet.

Ohio’s changing of its certification deadline from 60 to 90 days before the general election has necessitated adjustments in 2012 and 2020 to accommodate major party candidates. These modifications were always temporary.
