Houston in the running for 2020 DNC

Seems like there’s a few more places bidding for this one.

Eight cities are in consideration to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention as the party prepares for a presidential contest that is expected to include an unusually large number of candidates.

The Democratic National Committee sent requests for proposals to eight cities last month that expressed interest in hosting the event.

The cities are: Atlanta; Denver; Houston; New York; San Francisco; Milwaukee; Miami Beach; and Birmingham.

The DNC previously sent letters to a longer list of cities to gauge their interest. Birmingham and New York City were considered in 2016, but passed over.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee, is eyeing several cities for its own 2020 convention, including Las Vegas and Charlotte, North Carolina, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Guess it’s easier to get a city to take your call about a convention if you’re not shackled to the hateful garbage fire known as Donald Trump. Houston last hosted a national convention in 1992 when the Republicans were in town. That was a different time, and we’re a different city now. I’ve no idea how Houston’s bid will stack up against those other cities, and I honestly don’t really care if we get it or not. But I’m glad we’re bidding, and being taken seriously. In a different year and with a different President, I’d be fine with the city bidding on the RNC, too. The Chron has more.

    Keep that shit up in NY. We don’t need the Russian Liberal Party here in Texas.

    @Manny Barrera: I am glad that the media makes it so easy for us to tell the good racists from the bad racists, and the bad sexual harassers from the good sexual harassers.

    Russia has a Liberal Party ?

    Jason, there are those that know and know they know, then there are those that don’t know and don’t know that they don’t know.

    Ignorance is bliss, may your happiness engulf you.

    Wow, that is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma !

    With apologies to Prince……

    Let’s hope the 2020 Dems don’t party like It’s 1968.
