WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
This is the timeline for the 2008 Democratic National Convention site selection:
January 13, 2006 Deadline for cities to respond to an invitation to bid for the 2008 Convention February 2006 A formal Request for Proposal (RFP), containing detailed specifications for hosting the 2008 Convention, is sent to interested cities May 2006 Deadline for interested cities to submit formal responses to the RFP Summer 2006 Site visits Late summer 2006 Finalists named Late Fall 2006/Winter 2007 Announcement of 2008 Convention Host City
I would expect 10-20 cities to show their interest by January 13 in hosting the convention, with 5-10 cities formally responding to the RFP.
