I want you to be in Charlotte
One year from today, Democrats from across the country will meet in Charlotte, North Carolina to renominate Barack Obama for President.
The 2012 Convention will be different from any that came before it.
We believe this should be an event not just for the thousands who will attend but for the millions whose values it will reflect -- making supporters across the country feel closely tied to what is happening in Charlotte and giving you unprecedented access to the nominating process.
That's why we're asking you to sign up to get updates from the 2012 Democratic Convention. If you do, you'll automatically be entered for a chance to join us at the Convention in Charlotte one year from today.
Sign up now.
Conventions are a time to come together to celebrate our Party and our President, and show Americans what unites us as Democrats.
Three years ago, I was in Denver.
On the second-to-last night of the Democratic National Convention, I watched as Michael Wilson, an Iraq War veteran, stood to nominate Barack Obama to be president of the United States. I spoke to second that nomination, and I talked about how important it is to nominate a candidate who reflects all our values -- to choose a leader who is looking out for all our country's citizens, not just millionaires, billionaires, and special interests.
And I believe that our Convention ought to reflect those same fundamental principles.
To ensure that happens, I need you to take an active role and become a part of this event.
Sign up today to get updates about the 2012 Convention, be the first to know about news and behind-the-scenes events, and find ways to get involved. You could get to fly out to Charlotte and witness a new round of history in the making.
