More on Denver's party

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Dan Slater writes up Denver's reception to promote their bid to host the 2008 Democratic Convention:

Last night here in New Orleans was a great night to be a Colorado Democrat. The Denver 2008 Host Committee sponsored a great reception here at the Sheraton in New Orleans for DNC Members.

Attendance was phenomenal at the standing-room only event. DNC Members from across the country attended — and were talking about it all day today. Denver was well-represented; both current Mayor John Hickenlooper and former Mayor Wellington Webb joined together to present a great face to the group about why Denver should be the site for the 2008 Democratic National Convention.


Delegates also enjoyed the nice gift bags from the Denver 2008 folks. Included in the bags were a wooden box of chocolates with the Denver 08 logo, a book by John Fielder, a box of teas from Celestial Seasonings, a Denver lapel pin, a coupon for a free burrito at Chipotle, and several other items.

As we prepare to leave New Orleans, I think Denver has gone a long way to ensuring that we’re the top of the list for the National Convention. Folks are now beginning to understand: this could really happen!
