WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) and the Obama for America campaign today announced that Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) Chairman Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) and top Senate challengers will address the Convention Wednesday evening, August 27th.

“We have a once-in-a-generation chance to bring meaningful and lasting change to our country by electing Barack Obama President and sending a stronger Democratic majority to the Senate,” said Senator Schumer. “We need a stronger majority in the Senate to enact Obama’s broad, sweeping agenda, and our outstanding group of candidates is ready to deliver it.”

Joining Senator Schumer on the stage on Wednesday will be Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, and Tom Allen of Maine. - DNCC
