It's Official: See You In Charlotte in 2012!

 Here is DNC Chair's letter to DNC members announcing Charlotte as the winning bid. (Thanks DemRulz)

Dear Member —
 
We had a tough choice to make this year. In deciding which city should host the 2012 Democratic National Convention, we were presented with strong cases by four of America’s great communities. Today, I’m excited to announce that we have made our decision.

On the week of September 3rd, 2012, Charlotte, North Carolina will host the 46th Democratic National Convention.
 
This process offered some great choices. There were many cities eager for the opportunity to host our convention, and we are thankful for their participation throughout the year. The bid process was thorough. Our Technical Advisory Group conducted extensive site visits, and our allies and political leaders offered lots of important input.
 
After reviewing feedback from all these individuals, I am confident that Charlotte is an ideal location.  I want to congratulate the people of Charlotte, their mayor, Anthony Foxx, Senator Kay Hagan, Governor Bev Perdue, and every other leader who helped to put together this winning bid. I am looking forward to working with all of them to ensure that the next Democratic National Convention is one that will demonstrate the best of our party and our nation’s political process.
 
In less than two years, I look forward to coming together with you to re-nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for a second term — and to help propel them to victory in November 2012.
 
We’ll keep you updated as we move forward in this exciting process.
 
Sincerely,
 
Governor Tim Kaine
Chairman
