Democratic National Convention

November 4 will mark not only the end of the 2014 midterm, but the beginning of serious 2016 speculation. The political parties are setting their primary and convention plans in place. Republicans have picked Cleveland, Ohio, and scheduled the event in late June or mid-July.

Democrats are preparing a primary calendar that starts February 1 with the Iowa caucus and a February 9 primary in New Hampshire (Nevada Feb. 20 and South Carolina Feb. 27).

Democrats are still in their convention site selection process, with five cities in contention – Birmingham, Columbus, New York, Philadelphia and Phoenix. I predicted Republicans would go for Ohio (Cleveland) or Texas (Dallas); Ohio won. Based on politics, I think Philadelphia may have the Democrats’ favor.
