    Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a campaign event at the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center, July 28, in Wilmington, Del. Biden will not travel to Milwaukee to accept Democratic presidential nomination.

That’s according to a Democrat with knowledge of the decision who spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity to discuss planning.
