So far as I know, Bloomberg held talks with both parties around November 2002 on promoting New York (just as other cities, Boston, Miami etc, held talks).

As to what he said, or what swayed either party; I do not have that information and any further comment would be conjecture. There appear to be a variety of suggestions across the Web (for example, space available and financial reasons) but nothing beyond conjecture.

I can't find any reference to the WizBang story, so that may be conjecture too.

For some info:


No reference to bitter divisive Democrats here, but obviously there could be more to the story.

OK, the Dems decided to go to Boston on November 13 2002, while the Republicans decided to go to NYC in January 2003.

Verdict: total bullshit.

Let's see if this goes through (work webblocker seems to be down today): if so, ahem, language.

My apologies.

'SOK: it was an excuse to test my access, anyway. No biggie. :)

Wizbang updated his post with a link to http://newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/news/rnc/9678/index.html.

Read the link. It seems that the plan really was to have both there.
