SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison was among the speakers who addressed the California Democratic Party’s annual convention Saturday.

The event, held virtually due to the pandemic, took on a more muted tone than past conventions, when thousands gathered in person to debate policy and the party’s direction.

Newsom is expected to address the delegates in pre-recorded remarks airing later Saturday. They’ll also hear from Vice President Kamala Harris, who launched her political career in California.
