The Democratic National Convention kicks off tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where speakers will be virtually addressing audiences who are watching from home. Rep. Karen Bass, who represents parts of West and South LA, would usually be at that packed convention hall. Bass talks to KCRW about the convention, mail-in voting, coronavirus-related federal aid, calls to defund the police, and Joe Biden picking Kamala Harris as his running mate.
