Minneapolis and St. Paul apparently have won their bid to host the 2008 Republican convention, beating out New York, Cleveland and Tampa-St. Pete. The convention will be at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
Time to dust off the party hats and start blowing up balloons. It should be a fun time for those of us who live here. And, for those who are just visiting, don’t worry: there is plenty to do in St. Paul in the evening. Or there was, anyway, last time I went over there. In 1983.
