This is fantastic news for the city of Charlotte, no matter ones political affiliation, as this means more jobs, revenue, tourism, etc. for the city. This should prove to be a huge economic boon for Charlotte. I am on a few different political mailing lists and just received an email "from" Michelle Obama. I thought I'd share "her" words about Charlotte.
I am thrilled to make sure you are the first to hear some very exciting news. Charlotte, North Carolina, will host the 46th Democratic National Convention in 2012.
Charlotte is a city marked by its southern charm, warm hospitality, and an "up by the bootstraps" mentality that has propelled the city forward as one of the fastest-growing in the South. Vibrant, diverse, and full of opportunity, the Queen City is home to innovative, hardworking folks with big hearts and open minds. And of course, great barbecue.
I am very excited for Charlotte and will definitely try to attend some of the DNC in 2012.
