Report: GOP Picks Twin Cities for 2008 Convention
As of 1:30pm Wednesday afternoon, Drudge has reported that the Republican National Committee has chosen the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul as the site for the 2008 Republican Convention. Buzz surrounding a Twin Cities convention has been circulating DC for a few days, but this is the first public report indicating that a decision may have been finalized.
With recent national elections showing the Upper Midwest as a crucial swing region, this would prove to be a potentially savvy pick on behalf of Ken Mehlman and the convention committee.
