Charlotte Among Finalists For 2012 Democratic National Convention

North Carolina's largest city is one of four finalists chosen to host the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

State Democratic Party Chairman David Young sent a letter to party members saying Charlotte is among the four cities in the running to host the convention that will select the party's nominee for president and vice president.

The four finalists were revealed by national Democratic Party Chairman Tim Kaine in an e-mail sent on Wednesday. Also contending are St. Louis, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

Kaine says the selection team will visit the cities throughout the summer before choosing.

Young says the selection of Charlotte shows that North Carolina remains a battleground state and will be one of the most important states on the political map in 2012.
