Washington (CNN) – Democrats have chosen Charlotte, North Carolina, as the host city for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, a source with knowledge of the decision told CNN.
The official announcement will be made Tuesday.
(CNN) – Jon Stewart has called his upcoming 'Rally to Restore Sanity' a "call-to-reasonableness," but the Democratic National Committee is hoping it's a call to Democrats as well.
When 'Daily Show' fans descend on our nation's capitol on Saturday, the DNC will hold a get-out-the-vote phone bank at its national headquarters, and they're inviting rally attendees to stop by to man the phones.
Seattle (CNN) - As President Obama stumps here in the West for several Senate incumbents in deep trouble, Democratic officials revealed Thursday he will shift his attention to the Midwest and Northeast in the final weekend of the midterm election.
Obama will headline four major rallies for the Democratic National Committee in the final stretch, starting Saturday Oct. 30 in Philadelphia and Bridgeport. Pennsylvania and Connecticut have Senate battles that are simply too close to call, as well as competitive gubernatorial battles.
(CNN) - Karl Rove is lashing out at President Obama and the Democratic National Committee over a new ad that alleges the former top Bush aide is “stealing our Democracy.”
"They are tossing out these baseless charges," Rove said Sunday during an appearance on Fox News.
The comments come the same day the DNC announced it is launching a national television ad targeting Rove and another former Bush aide, Ed Gillespie, over their involvement with an issue advocacy group called Crossroads GPS that by law - because it is established as a non-profit - does not have to reveal its donors.
The organization has spent millions airing anti-Democratic ads in key races and faces charges that they are bending campaign finance laws by structuring itself as a tax-exempt "social welfare" 501(c)(4) organization.
(CNN) - The Republican National Committee raised $10.3 million in September, dramatically up from their August total but far less than the $16 million the Democratic National Committee brought in last month.
An RNC spokesman confirmed the numbers to CNN Friday. Earlier Friday a Republican source with knowledge of the numbers put the total at $9.7 million, which was first reported by the Hill.
Washington (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee's up with a new website, which includes a new logo and slogan.
The DNC unveiled Democrats.Org Wednesday morning. The logo is a capitol D in light blue surrounded by a darker blue circle. The slogan is "CHANGE THAT MATTERS," which the party says highlights what they call their many accomplishments since President Barack Obama took over in the White House and Democrats expanded their majorities in Congress.
The site also includes an easier way for people to learn more about the Democratic lawmakers and candidates in their states and districts. DNC Chairman Tim Kaine is expected to give more details about the website when he speaks later Tuesday at an event at George Washington University in Washington.
The new website is part of a push by the party to try to help soften what could be blows to their majorities in the House and Senate in November's midterm elections.
