Convention Announcement Wait Continues

Brian Kelly

ST. LOUIS (KMOX)- It looks like the four cities vying to host the 20-12 Democratic National Convention are going to have to wait a little longer to find out who wins the competition.

Reports are that Democratic Party officials are now going to wait until next week to announce the winner, in part not to steal any thunder from President Obama’s State of the Union Address.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill fears Charlotte may now be the front-runner, but St. Louis Mayor Slay isn’t giving up. In fact, Slay tells KMOX he did some last-minute, high-level lobbying while in Washington a few days ago, “I put a plug into President Obama, personally, and I also talked to (Democratic National Committee Chairman) Governor (Tim) Kane….and let ’em know we’re still interested and very poised to run a successful convention.”

Slay says neither the President nor Kane gave him a hint on who will get the convention or when it will be announced.

    Whatever, Mayor Slay-have a plan 2 ready. There is no Village and Arch 15 is
    a long time away. Have an aggressive plan 2 and it simply utilizes 2 of your biggest and best known historic resources. This year, not next.
