CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago is considering bidding to host the 2024 Democratic National Convention, according to a representative for the strategy group supporting the proposal.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Rise Strategy Group said in part, "As the DNC begins planning for the 2024 Democratic National Convention, Chicago is considering a bid to be host city.

From previous Democratic Conventions to the NATO Summit and annual large-scale events like the Air & Water Show, Chicago has a track record of successfully hosting large-scale events, and has the leadership required to make a convention a success."


Governor JB Pritzker, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, U.S. Senator Tammy Duck are leading the city's response to the request for proposal from the Democratic National Committee, the spokesperson said.

U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly and Senator Dick Durbin reportedly also support the bid, along with other local party, civic, business and community leaders.


Chicago previously hosted the DNC at the United Center in 1996 and at the International Amphitheatre in 1968, 1956 and 1952. The 1968 convention infamously spiraled into days of rage and riots, with thousands anti-Vietnam War protesters met outside the convention with violence from the Chicago Police Department and Army National Guard under the direction of then-mayor Richard J. Daley.

Trump 2024: ‘Time to start talking about greatness’

Former President Donald Trump has finally signaled themes he might use in a 2024 bid, turning from adjudicating the 2020 election to addressing over 15 key issues that he said President Joe Biden has fumbled, turning the United States into “a joke.”

Released just hours after his Mar-a-Lago winter camp was raided by the FBI, apparently in pursuit of missing documents, the former president listed 18 issues he said have turned sour under Biden that he would fix in a second term.

Taken from rallies and shown partially in black and white for impact, Trump opened with “We are a nation in decline” and concluded with “It is time to start talking about greatness for our country again.”

The nearly four-minute online post had the feel of Trump’s 2015 address to supporters after riding down a golden staircase in his Trump Tower, a scene Politico dubbed “The Escalator Ride That Changed America.”

Missing was a mention of alleged fraud in the 2020 election, an issue aides have been urging him to shelve and instead focus on bread-and-butter issues that won him the 2016 election over heavily favored Hillary Clinton.

In the video, Trump hit on the sinking economy, the gas crisis, Biden’s abandonment of Afghanistan, and his favorite target, “fake news.”

He also said the Justice Department has been “weaponized” against him, a charge leveled by several top Republicans after last night’s FBI raid.

“We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke,” said Trump, who ran on a campaign theme in 2016 of "Make America Great Again," followed up by a 2020 theme of "Keep America Great." Lately, he has been touting a "Save America" theme.

Trump is expected to announce his decision about running in 2024 after the midterm congressional elections, though some insiders have speculated he might announce earlier to fight the multiple court cases he is facing.

“Soon, we will have greatness again,” Trump said in wrapping up his video. “It was hardworking patriots like you who built this country. And it is hardworking patriots like you who are going to save our country. There is no mountain that we cannot climb, there is no summit we cannot reach. There is no challenge we cannot beat. There is no victory we cannot have. We will not bend, we will not break. We will not yield ever, ever, ever. We will never give in, we will never give up, and we will never ever back down,” Trump added.
