WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
In April, the DNC held a meeting in New Orleans and I watched with interest how different cities were hosting receptions, and especially how Orlando's cancelling of their reception was followed 2 weeks later by them dropping out of the running to host the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Well the DNC is meeting in Chicago in August, and the three cities still in the running are all hosting parties:
New York: Thursday Aug 17 - evening
Minneapolis/St. Paul: Friday Aug 18 - evening
Denver: Saturday Aug 19 - morning
Unless the New York reception gets cancelled, I can assume the rumor about New York dropping out is unfounded.
