Democratic Convention touts first ever mobile app

(CNN) - The Democratic National Convention says it’s launching its first ever official convention mobile app for smart phones to give what it says will be more ways for Americans to engage during the convention, which will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina the first week of September.

The Democratic National Convention Committee says the app will hit stores Tuesday and will provide more ways for people to participate in the convention either in person or virtually.

"With the launch of this mobile app, Democrats are taking another step in making this the most open and accessible convention in history," DNCC CEO Steve Kerrigan said in a statement. "Whether you're joining us in person for the convention in Charlotte, or engaging virtually from anywhere in the country, there's something for everyone in this app. From live-streaming convention speeches to finding a great restaurant in the Queen City this app puts the 2012 Democratic National Convention at your fingertips."

The DNC app follows the releases last week of mobile apps by the campaigns of President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

    The GOP will call for more wealth to be hoarded by the 1% and more taxes on the rest of us, more war, more poisoning of the Earth...just another convention of sociopaths.

    They need Ron Paul to be there. It is the only hope of securing the 15 to 20 percent of Paul people. Without that Romney can't win. Santorum will not help with the base at all. The people who supported Santorum were all Republican anyways. Ron Paul pulled Moderate Democrats, and the independents. Without those Obama gets another 4 years. The GOP needs to grow the party. You can't do that by turning away potential voters.

    Why won't CNN reveal that there are no such thing as bound delegates as per RNC rules? As far as I know a lot of "romney" delegates are actually Paul supporters, and it will be great to see the RNC turn into a madhouse as the "presumptive nominee" isn't nominated.
    "“Jennifer Sheehan, Legal Counsel for the RNC, plainly stated in a letter to Nancy Lord, Utah National Committeewoman, several weeks before the convention, 'The RNC does not recognize a state's binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.'”"

    Actually, Rand only will "inherit" the GOP slime he cuddled up to. His fathers' following (of which I am one of) have smoked Rand out for the Establishment traitor he is. He'll not get my support, nor will he get much (if any) of his fathers following. We do more than just rally around some cheap slogan. We demand our man WALK THE WALK.
