WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
"Colorado is proud to host to the Convention, which will shine a spotlight on all the things that make our state so great. I am pleased that the DNCC has made a long-term, sustained effort to involve the entire Rocky Mountain region in this historic event," Gov. Ritter said. "The Convention Captains program will provide an opportunity for every county in the state to be a part of this historic event."
Convention Captains will organize and host watch parties where families, friends and neighbors can come together in counties throughout Colorado as Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination for President of the United States on Thursday, August 28. Each Convention Captain will be issued a "playbook" arming them to serve as a local ambassador for the four-day event and providing them with helpful tips for planning and hosting a successful watch party and other events to engage their community in the Convention.
"There is no question that the great state of Colorado will play a crucial role in the general election come November," said Convention Co-Chair Governor Sebelius. "The 'Convention Captains' program will highlight our efforts to engage new communities in this region and really provide a platform to showcase what our Party has to offer. After all, the goal of this program is to reach beyond the Convention hall, just as Barack Obama has done throughout the primary season by bringing new people in to the political process."
