Reid and other senators back Denver bid - updated

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

From the Rocky Mountain News:

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and three other Democratic U.S. senators are backing Denver's bid to host their party convention in 2008.

Reid and Senators Ken Salazar of Colorado, Max Baucus of Montana and Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico wrote a letter to Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, endorsing the Mile High City.

"We believe the West to be the ideal setting for Democrats to showcase the strength, character and vision of our party and our Presidential nominee," the senators wrote in the letter, dated Sept. 26.

Not unexpected, but still good news for Denver's bid.

Update: Not suprisingly, Sens. Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer, Rep. Charles Rangel and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, all of New York, are all supporting New York's bid.
