Washington (CNN) – Democrats, mark your calendars.
The Democratic National Committee announced Monday that it will hold its national convention the week of September 3, 2012. Where it will take place is still undecided.
DNC Chairman Tim Kaine revealed the convention date in a blog posting where he declared that Democrats “will re-nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, and re-affirm our party’s values of equality, inclusion, diversity, and respect.”
The 2012 Republican National Convention is scheduled to begin August 27, 2012. This week a delegation of Republican officials are in Salt Lake City, Utah, which is vying to host the event. The 12 members tasked with helping to choose the GOP’s host city have already visited Phoenix, Arizona and Tampa Bay, Florida.
