The Natchez Blog Makes the Big Time!

Today the Natchez Blog receive an amazing email. We have been selected by the Democratic National Committee to be the Official State Blog for the State of Mississippi at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August. The Natchez Blog will be given official floor credentials and will be seated with the Mississippi Delegation.

This is an awesome honor. As I looked through the list of chosen blogs, I realized we will be with some incredible company - famous blogs that I've been reading forever. I don't know this for a fact, but I imagine we might be the smallest blog there.

In an announcement today, DNC Chairman Howard Dean said
"The Internet has played a critical role in connecting Americans to elected officials and candidates seeking office. The DemConvention State Blogger Corps will continue to foster this dialogue - in all 50 of our states and our territories too - as we head towards this year's historic election and elect a Democrat to the White House."

WOW! This is going to be exciting! More information to come later once we get over our shock.

Saw where Sen Obama just got the nod from Sen Edwards. Sad Sad. I thought better of Sen Edwards.

I'm voting for Sen McCain.

With all the fiction writers found on here it is no wonder it has been selected.

With any luck you will get seated between the Daily Kos and Moveon.org and you will fit right in.

Will be looking forward to reading your reports. Could you start now by telling us who the Mississippi delegates are?

delegate list is in errorAnyone can go to Denver and enjoy the Democratic Convention. Just arrange for transportation to and from Denver, and a room to stay in August 25th-until the 28th. Without delegate credentials you can still go everywhere a delegate goes during the daytime, (it's finding out about various events that is a challenge for delegates and guests) and at the Pepsi Convention Center at night, you can watch everything from an upper level. So don't let the lack of credentials stop you, join us in Denver when we'll make History with our nomination!
