Denver Now Frontrunner For 2008 Democratic National Convention, New Orleans Withdraws
From the Denver Post (h/t ColoradoPols):
Denver is one of just three cities vying for the 2008 Democratic National Convention after New Orleans withdrew its bid this week.And the conservative bloggers around the state are rejoicing, as the possibility of the convention in Denver inches closer.
New Orleans had been considered a sentimental favorite location to pick the next Democratic presidential candidate as a way of showcasing the city's recovery from Hurricane Katrina.
Its withdrawal leaves just Denver, Minneapolis and New York in the running.
"And of those," said City Councilwoman Elbra Wedgeworth, who co-chairs Denver's host committee, "Denver is the only one not bidding for the Republican National Convention as well."
