The Democratic National Committee announced Wednesday that Charlotte is one of four finalists for its 2012 convention, putting the city closer than ever to landing a national political gathering.
“It’s a huge deal,” Mayor Anthony Foxx, a Democrat, said Wednesday night. “The 2012 Democratic National Convention carries a significant and positive economic impact and will also put our city, our region and our state on an international stage.”
Charlotte will compete with Cleveland, Minneapolis and St. Louis. The party is expected to choose a date by the end of the year.
