WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
You're New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin. You're in a huge election battle, that many expect you to lose. Your primary runoff is in 5 days, on May 20. Oh, and by the way, your city's proposal to host the 2008 Democratic National Convention is due the day before the election, on May 19. And the main reason the Democrats might come to your city, Katrina, is the reason you might lose the election. And some think that if you win the election, you won't get the bid anyway.
Will New Orleans get a bid in this week? There's been absolutely no news on any activity by New Orleans to prepare a bid, so it's hard to know what's going on.
It would not suprise me if New Orleans does not get a bid in by Friday, but it would also not suprise me if the DNC allowed the bid to come in late, given the circumstances.
