WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee has chosen Denver to host the party's 2008 national convention, multiple senior Democratic strategists tell CNN.
The DNC would not confirm the selection, but Colorado Democratic Party Chair Patricia Waak told CNN that the party received two calls from the DNC this morning leading her to believe that Denver will be the site of the 2008 convention. Waak said she expected an official announcement shortly.
The last time a Democratic convention was held in Denver was 1908, when the Democrats nominated William Jennings Bryan as their nominee for a third time. News that the DNC picked Denver was first reported by National Journal's Hotline.
