FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Tyler Cofield elected to represent Democrats Abroad at the 2020 Democratic “Convention Across America” 

Tyler Cofield was elected to become a member of the Democrats Abroad delegation representing Sen. Bernie Sanders at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, where they will take part in the process of nominating America’s next President and Vice President. 

Tyler lives in Warsaw, Poland, but hails from Arlington, TX. They decided to come to Europe on a whim and didn’t think they’d stay long. However, things have worked out and they have since decided to settle down. 

He is thrilled to be representing Senator Bernie Sanders at this year’s Democratic National Convention and hopes to “get in good trouble” and make positive contributions to this democratic process.

Living abroad gives Tyler a unique perspective on U.S. politics, and, in particular, the damage done by the Trump presidency to America’s standing and role in the world. They look forward to representing other American Democrats living outside the country, and to supporting the Democratic nominee, Vice President Joe Biden, in the election this fall.

Our delegation is very focused, energized and ready to make a difference. Each member brings their own unique perspective to the table through their experiences in the US and abroad, and I’m delighted to be part of a team with Ty.”, said Julia Bryan, Global Chair of Democrats Abroad,  “They’re a member of the youngest, most diverse, delegation we have ever elected and are an excellent representative and advocate for Democrats Abroad and mobilizing the vote abroad.”

The 2020 Democratic National Convention, or “Convention Across America”, will be held entirely online, with many activities and events planned to engage Democrats all over America and the world from August 17th to August 20th. Although the main events will fall within the week of the convention, delegates have already started casting their votes for their presidential candidate.
