U.S. Rep. Bob Brady has his answer. Tomorrow, the city’s Democratic Party chairman will make his case for a convention bid to political, tourism and labor leaders from the region.
To do so, Brady is bringing to Philly the team that produced the 2012 convention in Charlotte, N.C. They will explain the complicated process of winning the bid.

Brady, who first publicly floated the idea of a 2016 convention during the Charlotte convention 11 months ago, had been cheerleader-in-chief for an effort to hold the 2012 soiree here. – Daily News
