The votes for who will host 2016’s Democratic National Convention are in and the winner is Philadelphia.
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz made the announcement Thursday
Schultz lauded Philadelphia in a statement, saying the city’s “deep rooted place in American history provides a perfect setting for this special gathering.”
The last time a presidential convention was held in Philadelphia was in 2000 with George W, Bush. The past two DNC conventions were held at Charlotte in 2012 and Denver in 2008.
