US News: Denver has already won the convention

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com

This is just poor writing/editing, but it was amusing to see in this article in U.S. News on the Latino vote that Denver has already won the 2008 Democratic National Convention:

Pollsters eyeing the results say the most profound effect of the 2006 election could be shifting voting patterns in the West, where almost a third of the Hispanic population resides. Democrats picked up a governor's seat in Colorado and a Senate seat in Montana, and they solidly held on to the governorship in Arizona. In the Tucson area, a seat that borders Mexico–held for 22 years by retiring Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe–was captured by a moderate Democrat, former state Sen. Gabrielle Giffords. With an eye toward the West, Democrats have decided to stage their next presidential convention in Denver.
I had to read this a few times to make sure it said what it said. But this isn't being reported anywhere else, so it's just a screw-up. It wouldn't surprise me if this gets updated at some point.

Also reported on MSNBC/Newsweek:


Either they are picking up on the erronious story or there is someone on the committee leaking info.
