WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Did Detroit accept the invitation to bid for the 2008 Democratic National Convention? Well, from today's Detroit News: "One of a dozen cities still in contention"? Sounds like Detroit accepted the invitation. But from today's Detroit Free Press:
"Detroit would be an excellent site for the 2008 Democratic National Convention," said Jason Moon, spokesman for the Michigan Democratic Party. "And the (2005 Major League Baseball) All-Star Game and now the Super Bowl proved that Detroit would be a tremendous host for any major event." Moon said Detroit is one of about a dozen cities in contention to host the gathering.
City spokeswoman Ceeon Quiett said the city just learned of its inclusion on the RNC's list Wednesday and hadn't had a chance to discuss a bid. Nor has it discussed a bid for the Democratic convention.Not sure how you accept an invitation without discussing it. Or maybe it depends on the meaning of "discuss"!
