Welcome to The DNC In The CLT

One year from now, Charlotte will host the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Either you already know this, or you have no connection to the outside world. But over the course of the next twelve months, on this new blog, we plan to share with you all things DNC, including the tidbits of info you likely wouldn’t have known.

We plan to have fun with this. Who are the decision makers? Who’s renting out which ballrooms? What DNC-inspired menus are restaurants coming up with? Where will the Obamas stay?

We’ll let the politicians play politics while we share stories of the key people, the planning, the events, the successes, the failures, the rumors, and more leading up to the week of September 3, 2012 when an estimated 6,000 delegates and 10,000 journalists will descend upon the Queen City. And not to mention the tens of thousands of other political figures, business leaders, and everyday visitors and spectators who’ll be learning firsthand that uptown is downtown and that center city is uptown and South End.
