De Blasio Wants Democratic Convention in Brooklyn

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) "does not think there are enough Democrats in Brooklyn. So come summer of 2016, he is hoping to import about 35,000 more," the New York Times reports.

"The de Blasio administration on Friday proposed that when the Democratic Party gathers to crown its next presidential nominee, it do so in the mayor's home borough, a cradle of the resurgent left that has morphed from a symbol of the working class into a gritty, global arbiter of cool."

"A Democratic convention in Brooklyn, which has some of the most liberal pockets in one of the country's most liberal cities, would be a stark departure from the recent tradition of political parties hosting their conventions in swing states like Florida and Colorado."
