Denver and Orlando hosting receptions at the DNC Spring meeting in New Orleans

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

As I wrote last fall, the DNC is holding their regular spring meeting in New Orleans starting on April 20. What's most interesting is that Denver and Orlando are both hosting evening receptions (on different nights) in support of their convention bids. None of the other cities, even including the host city of New Orleans, has a reception on the schedule. (The schedule could change, of course). For Denver, this is not surprising - they continue to be the most aggressive of the potential cities. But I am surprised by Orlando. I had downplayed their chances, but this reception shows that they are quite serious about going after the convention. And they were the only city besides Denver to announce that first weekend that they were interested in hosting the convention. So Orlando will need to be watched more closely.

And to clarify some things said in the comments, while the members of the DNC to not get to vote on the site selection, clearly their opinions, like those of other key Democrats, will be very important to Dean, and therefore the wooing of the ~440 DNC members will be interesting to watch.

Matt, this is such an incredible site!

I try to check in every day to see if you've found any more news to share.

I wonder how you recommend sites for awards? This one DEFINITELY deserves one!

It's incredible! Libby

Libby, thanks for the kind words. I don't think we're quite ready for any awards yet, but what you can do is spread the word. Tell your friends, blog it if you have a blog, or mention it in comments elsewhere when it's appropriate. -Matt
