The Democratic National Committee will host a town hall-style event Tuesday night at the Hilton Garden Inn in Philadelphia to test out new messaging for the general election, according to the organization.
Ahead of the event, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she’s eager to talk with Trump, but that she’s “really tired” of the “conventional wisdom” and “the ‘dark’ side of his personality.”
“I have to tell you, I really am tired of this ‘conventional approach,'” Wasserman Schultz told a group of reporters in the room, adding that the Democratic Party needs to embrace “bold new ideas and bold new messaging.”
Wasserman Schultz, who announced her resignation Tuesday as chairwoman, said the event is part of a broader effort to “build our strength and our appeal across the country and across our party.”
She added that she expects the Democratic presidential nominee to deliver “a strong message of optimism, optimism and inclusion.”
The DNC has been working for months on a new messaging strategy.
The group has also been working to build support for Hillary Clinton, as the party tries to build an alternative message.
Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, is scheduled to speak at a town-hall-style gathering at the Washington Hilton Garden, with a crowd of about 200 people.
It’s not clear when the event will take place.
Democratic operatives have been trying to build on past efforts, including hosting town halls in Michigan, New Hampshire and North Carolina.
The DNC is also preparing to hold its first televised debate in Cleveland on Sunday, which will be held on CNN and is expected to draw more than 200,000 viewers.
The debate is expected on ABC and will be moderated by Anderson Cooper.
