The theme for the night is "America's Promise." Along with a speech from Biden, who will be introduced by former President Barack Obama, speakers will include Sen. Cory Booker. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, and Sen. Chris Coons. The Chicks are also expected to perform.
