WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Andre reports an email he received from David McAuley, the Director of the Washington, D.C. district office of the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau:
I’ve been reading your blog tonight about the DNC 2008, a topic in which I am both personally and professionally interested.... For the most part, I think my bosses fear the enormous cost of hosting the event, and rightfully so. But I am wondering how the local party back home might take on the endeavor.Andre comments:
Personally, I think that if Mayor Franklin decides to throw Atlanta's hat in the ring for the 2008 Democratic Convention, the Democratic Party of Georgia would almost be obligated to support her and provide whatever support it can to the effort.Finally, McAuley writes:
Frankly, we might be more ripe to host the RNC.I don't know - I hear Anchorage is pushing hard for the Republican convention!
