I'll ask you the same question. What is your list of acceptable and approved news sources for the people of Charlotte to be reading?

News sources that make their money stirring the political pot aren't the best sources for reports on the DNC. The people of Charlotte care about the DNC attendance, violence by demonstrators and making sure the event is a success.

Most of Charlotte doesn't care if 3 representives from WV don't show up due to close elections... we care if the hotels aren't booked or if turnout projections are low.

The telling tale will be to see what Larry Kissell does. He is the only member of congress in this area who actually has to run in a competitive district.
And apparently he his "kissed off" the DNC and Obama camp too.

Yep. I wonder if there has ever been a DNC convention, where an incumbent congressman and party delegate, having said convention in his home district, refuses to attend the convention? Oh well no matter. It's pretty clear what this really means and politicians will be politicians.

I think more interesting to people who like this sort of thing is what STL paper recently said about CLT's efforts concerning the convention. (sounds like sour grapes to me)

Editorial Short Take: Hey DNC, wishing you were meeting in St. Louis?

If Kissells district wasn't rezoned by the GOP he would be first in line to hug Obama at the DNC.

IMO, all districts in NC should be redrawn like Kissell's as to be competitive. It's certainly better than the other two gerrymandered districts here that keep sending back the same democrat and same republican back year after year regardless of their record.

Sour grapes and childish journalism.

Again, Larry who? Other than right wing mouth-pieces trying to make a big deal out of it, nobody cares. It will not impact Charlotte's image, the DNC or Obama's re-election campaign.

He is NC's congressman from the 8th congressional district. His district includes Plaza-Midwood, Elizabeth, Chantilly, the edge of Dilworth, and neighborhoods stretching from there out to the county line, I think a lot of of people might be interested in it.
