Democrats Go South

Similar to picking Denver by selecting Charlotte, Obama wants to strengthen his position in North Carolina, which he closely carried in 2008, and other mid-southern states, such as Virginia.  Although picking a convention city is mostly a sorting through prosaic arrangement factors, by not picking Ohio, Minnesota or Missouri, the Democrats may have signaled they’re putting more emphasis on new states Obama won in 2008 rather than states Democrats struggled with in 2010.
