Democratic National Convention in Cleveland in 2012?

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland today released the following statement in support of Cleveland hosting the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

The Democratic National Committee today announced Cleveland as a finalist along with Charlotte, Minneapolis and St. Louis.

"I can think of no better place to play host to a 2012 national political convention than the city of Cleveland," Strickland said. "Cleveland has a rich history, and arts, entertainment and cultural offerings that, along with Lake Erie, offer convention planners a menu of options and potential visitors the promise of a great experience. Perhaps most important, Cleveland provides the ideal backdrop for what is sure to be a historic convention as the city embodies the diversity and determined hope of America."
