Minneapolis and Anaheim updates

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Minneapolis is definitely submitting a bid for the 2008 Democratic National Convention:

Lee Henderson, a spokesman for the Greater Minneapolis Convention and Visitors Association, said Tuesday that the city would be submitting bids for both the Democratic and Republican conventions.
And Anaheim is the second city known to form a Host Committee:
The nonprofit Anaheim 2008 Convention Host Committee, headed by Republican strategist Jeff Flint, has funded the lobbying effort with corporate donations and money from the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau.

I certainly don't want Minneapolis getting it. Its a beautiful city, but I just don't think its the right place for a National Convention.

I'm curious, why do you think Minneapolis isn't the right place for the convention?

Minneapolis would be great for the convention. We held the last two on the East and West Coast, it's time for a convention in the heartland.

I think the south would be a much more suitable place. We are finally beginning to make inroads there.
