SC Dem: We might need to move our convention also

On the heels of the RNC announcing they would like to see a June or July convention, one state Democrat feels the Democrats might have to follow:

"The party that gets their (presidential) nominee out for six weeks, eight weeks early would have an advantage," said Dick Harpootlian, chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party. "I think there would be significant pressure" to move up the Democratic convention.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), which will review the 2016 calendar in September, plans to closely watch the RNC as it determines its schedule this spring.-HuffPost

Still no idea if this will go anywhere. Old convention watchers still grimace at Mike Dukakis, who after getting the nomination at an emotional convention in Atlanta in July, decided to take a 6 week summer vacation in Massachusetts until Labor Day. There's something to be said for having the convention in later August and hitting the ground running as the calendar turns to September.
