DNC announcement in early February?

Charlotte officials may have to wait until early February to learn if the Queen City will host the 2012 Democratic National Convention, according to a Thursday report on POLITICO.

Meanwhile, Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx says he, too, has not received any new indications from the White House about whether the city will get the convention nod. Earlier this week, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said she was worried her state could miss out on the convention, in part, because she hadn't received any insight from the White House.

One Democratic party source said a decision could come as soon as the first few days of the month, wrote POLITICO's David Catanese. Read his piece by clicking here .

Charlotte is among four cities in the hunt for the convention, and is widely believed to be a front-runner along with St. Louis.

A decision on the convention site has been looming for weeks and delayed this month, in part, because in the wake of in the aftermath of the Tucson, Ariz. shootings. The early February timing could ensure the announcement doesn't compete with next week's State of the Union address, the Democratic source told POLITICO.

"But one Democratic operative stressed that making a decision soon is "in the interest of everybody involved" for logistical and fundraising purposes," Catanese writes. - APRIL BETHEA

Pitching the DNC for here The hypocritical Observer brags about a black mayor, mayor pro-tem, police chief, county mgr, NBA owner etc.

But where is the black editor? cartoonist? assist editors? Do as we say not as we do?


There has NEVER been a black editor of the Observer in 150 since it began. WHY?

Double RACIST.

We demand a black editor.

We demand a black cartoonist.

All top level administrative positions should be black.

No ifs ands or buts ...
