Denver Dem expects a mid-November decision

WE’VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Denver Business Journal reports:

Denver attorney Steve Farber, a partner at Brownstein Hyatt & Farber and a chair of the [Denver 2008] host committee [said] “They’ll probably negotiate two contracts and pick one. I think we’ll hear [from the Democratic National Committee] in mid-November.”

Now I have no reason to doubt this quote or article, but I would note that the article starts off saying:

Denver is out of the running for the 2008 Republican presidential convention….
Other markets competing for the convention besides Denver included New York City, Cleveland and Tampa-St. Petersburg, Fla.

Can these reporters just do a little research, please? Denver did not bid for the Republican convention, and was therefore out of the running a long time ago.
