The Democratic National Convention will be held the week of July 25, 2016, the DNC announced Friday.

The party is still in final negotiations with Columbus, New York and Philadelphia to determine where the convention will be held.

“This is the next step to finalize where and when we will nominate the 45th President of the United States, highlight the Democratic Party’s agenda of fighting for expanded opportunity and contrast it with the Republican Party’s commitment to the fortunate few,” said DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “We are still in discussions with three excellent cities and are looking forward to a diverse and inclusive convention that displays our party’s values.”

The Republican National Convention will be held the previous week of July 18, in Cleveland, Ohio.
