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.
I loved visiting North Carolina. Just driving up 95 with my windows down...love the smell of PINE. They have great roads and a beautiful county side. Now if South Carolina would invest in it's state....I would love to drive through it too. For right now...once is enough.
I don't understand why they don't hold it in the Mecca of their party, San Franciso. This way we can see so much more of delusional Nancy Pelosi, the figurehead of the Democrat party. I can hardly wait to see what far left candidates they dig up to try to get elected after the fiasco on the last 2-4 years.
Why wouldn't they? They have already given them plenty with TARP funds...
I have loved this beautiful area of North Carolina since I first went to a convention there in 1953.
Democrats should leave that scenery refreshed for the presidential battle in 2012.
Republicans had better pay attention to what Republican leaders like the Bush and Cheney families are saying about the rights of gay voters if they want to compete with Obama's social progress when the White House is up for grabs again.
Terrible choice. NC will not go Dem again... this could have helped seal the deal for Obama in Ohio, and hence, the presidency. Thanks for nothing... another presidential year "competing for the South." Ugh. Keep on stepping on the Midwest, Dems. You may never win us again...
Awesome! Charlotte finally gets the DNC for the first time ever.
Way to go Charlotte!!!!!!!
As a wife and mother of 3 and a NC native, I am extreamly excited to see the National Democratic Convention come to Charlotte!
Great News! Charlotte needs to be put on the National Stage, it has been a booming city for the past few decades with little notice.
Aww. Was hoping for Cleveland.
definitely a good news to us all....I shall attend this...Go for Obama 2012....we need this president desperately...
This is awesome! Finally a silver lining to being stuck on the East Coast!
Well as if further proof was neede the dems have joined the republicans in the employ of the BIG banks
I am saddened that my home town of Boston was not picked for this, but glad that the very caucuasian cities of Minneapolis and St. Louis were turned down. Charlotte is a wonderful diverse city.
nice! I live 1 hour from Charlotte, ill definitley be going. Hope its not expensive to get in
As a citizen of Minnesota it is a shame that a state that has reliably voted Democratic for president since 1972 was bypassed.
I would have gone with Cleveland, OH. This is a state that will make or break the presedential race.
Charlotte? LOL. Where are the Republicans going to go? Boston?
It appears that winning North Carolina in 2012 is a top priority for the Democrats.
I have no problem with the convention being held in Charlotte, a city which well represents the true make up of the Democratic Party diversity overall.
