And then there were four: Boston is giving tours to Democratic National Committee host officials who will select the site for the 2004 national convention. Pittsburgh was on the original list of ten, but never really had a shot and dropped out early in the process. Some say Pittsburgh was on the list as a favor to Mayor Tom Murphy, who endorsed Ed Rendell in the Pennsylvania governor’s race a few days before the list was announced.
The list has been now been pared down to Boston, Detroit, New York and Miami. Just remember, you read it here first on April 11 that both 2004 conventions will be in New York City.
