You know the DNC Convention in Charlotte? Apparently, some genius at the DNC had originally decided to have a big opening event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. They even had planned for a DNC stock car to be there. So, how's that going?
Just last month, the local host committee unveiled an official stock car for the Democratic National Convention – and said it could have taken a spin around the speedway at the Labor Day event. The event was touted by organizers as being family-friendly and something that would engage “more Americans in the convention than ever before, and celebrate Labor Day, our democracy, the Carolinas, Virginia and the South.” But the Speedway festival had attracted little interest among correspondents planning to cover the DNC.
I'm shocked that a bunch of Democrats don't want to go to a NASCAR track for their little party. Maybe they should have planned to have it at a light-rail station, instead.
