Unions and Facility Problems Damage Denver Convention Bid
The political “buzz” about the location of the Democratic National Convention has Denver slipping into second behind St Paul/Minneapolis because of Union problems and lack of facilities, according to sources within the national party circle. They acknowledged that Denver Mayor Hickenlooper is working on the labor problems, but with the DNC decision expected in November, will he have enough time to solve the problems?
New York is another city vying for the convention, but Democratic Leadership Council members in Denver last month claimed New York is definitely “out.”
The possibility that the Republicans will also have Minnesota on their short list has been mentioned on the The Democratic Convention News website, which is specifically covering Democratic and Republican convention news.
