No news from Las Vegas, New Orleans or New York

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

When cities have bid for conventions in the past, they ususally publicize their efforts. In 2004:

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg presented the City's bid to McAuliffe in a ceremony in the main lobby of Grand Central Station on the afternoon of April 11
There was no ceremony for New York on Friday, and no news at all from Las Vegas, New Orleans or New York. Now the deadline for the GOP is today, so maybe that might delay an announcement. And the DNC could easily extend the deadline, and this would make sense for New Orleans. But with every passing hour, the likelihood that only Denver and Minneapolis submitted bids for the convention grows.
