Philly

Democratic party officials are wrapping up a two-day visit to Philadelphia to evaluate the City of Brotherly Love as a possible site of the party's 2016 convention.

Representatives were at the Comcast Center this morning and are expected to attend a rally at the National Constitution Center and a reception at the Art Museum. On Wednesday, they toured a sports arena and had lunch at a famed cheesesteak shop. - WITF

Phoenix

Site selectors for the 2016 Democratic National Convention will be in Phoenix early next month.

Phoenix is battling Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Columbus, Ohio; and Birmingham, Alabama for the 2016 DNC.

Ann Wallack, chairwoman of the regional bid, said Democratic convention executives and site selectors will be in town Sept. 9-11.

They will tour US Airways Center, the Phoenix Convention Center and other downtown venues. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton will also be part of the meetings, Wallack said. - Phoenix Business Journal

 And some Brooklyn news

A host committee of 70 prominent New Yorkers have pledged to raise $100 million to support the convention and parties that surround it, including JPMorgan Chase Chief Executive Jamie Dimon, Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein, and celebrities like Cynthia Nixon.

“We have a lot of people in this town who provide a lot of support for the Democratic Party, and the resources will be there,” de Blasio told reporters Wednesday.

The mayor’s office believes the city would surpass the $255 million Republicans brought in when they held their convention in Manhattan in 2004. De Blasio said that amount of money will be recouped “many times over” because of the financial impact of the convention. - WPRO
