Hotline: NYC edging Twin Cities in race for convention bid

Hotline says New York City is edging Minneapolis-St. Paul in the race for the 2008 DNC Convention:

According to party sources and other Democrats who have consulted with members of the party’s selection committee, NYC and Minneapolis-St. Paul are right outside the winners’ circle. NYC is said to have an edge — at least for now.

Hotline says this is the drawback for the Twin Cities:

The Twin Cities’ bid meets the party’s nominal requirements, but several Democrats involved in the process worry about extended commutes from delegate hotels to events.
