Nagin wins - but did he remember to send in a bid?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

As I wrote earlier this week, New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin has been in a huge election battle to win re-election, and therefore I would have been suprised if New Orleans got their bid for the 2008 Democratic National Convention summited by the deadline on Friday. And there's been absolutely no news if New Orleans submitted a bid. Well, now that Nagin has won, he and the city should be able to turn their attention towards towards the convention, and I would think the DNC would extend the deadline given the circumstances.

On the other hand, there are those who think that the Nagin victory will ensure that New Orleans does not get the convention. We shall see.
