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.

    @OSOC: Bingo! You have called it correctly. OSOC would sell his family, soul, and our country (which he failed to serve) down the river for his political preferences. And he speaks of patriotism, what a laugh. This Desert Storm vet. laughs at this epitome of the Great American Chicken Hawk. Squaauuwwwkkk. All message board bluster, no American service. Sincerely, a true red, white, and blue Independent. Don't trust Fox, don't trust MSNBC, trust yourself and the USA!

    The reason they should bother is because bringing tens of thousands of people to Charlotte would help boost the economy of North Carolina. But I suspect that you would not be in favor of helping the state if the democrats do it!

    Why bother? With how much the party has screwed up the economy, November will not be very fruitfull.
