The DNC Host City Is...

Mayor Anthony Foxx

It's been five months since the four finalists to host the convention were named. The winner is expected to be announced by the end of the year. What makes the finalists stand out? We decided to ask representatives of each city. Unfortunately, officials with St. Louis and Cleveland declined our invitation. But representatives of Charlotte and Minneapolis joined WFAE's Scott Graf on the phone - Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and Melvin Tennant of an organization called Meet Minneapolis. Listen to their conversation. More about the four finalists: Charlotte in 2012 St. Louis 2012 Minneapolis 2012 DNC As of yet, Cleveland does not have an official website promoting the city as a host of the 2012 Democratic National Convention. In lieu of that, this video parody has become an Internet hit.
