The following story is the first in what will be a long series of CQPolitics.com reports on what participants in the 2008 presidential nominating conventions can expect from the host cities: Denver for the Democrats (Aug. 25-28, 2008) and Minneapolis-St. Paul (Sept. 1-4, 2008 for the Republicans).
In this kickoff article, Adriel Bettelheim, the regulatory editor for Congressional Quarterly’s CQWeekly, shares his knowledge about the city recently named as the Democrats’ convention pick. Bettelheim was a business reporter and then Washington correspondent for the Denver Post from 1989 to 1998.
