Guide to Day Three of the 2016 Democratic National Convention
As announced by the Democratic National Convention Committee, here is the run of show for the third day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
In Philadelphia, Democrats are laying out the clear stakes in this election – a choice between building walls and tearing people down or an optimistic unifying vision where everyone has a role to play in building our future.
On Wednesday night, speakers will discuss how Hillary Clinton has the experience and steadiness to bring Americans together to get real results for our families.
