GNB Credentialed for 2008 Democratic National Convention

Party in Denver in August

The Democratic National Convention Committee has announced Group News Blog is among more than 120 blogs credentialed for the convention.

Blogs Credentialed For The Convention.

From July 1 through July 15, Group News Blog will hold our first fund-raising drive. The primary use of these funds will be staff expenses for the convention.

Steve Gilliard was one of the roughly 30 bloggers credentialed for the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston. This feels very much as if we've come full-circle.

We are deeply honored to be on the same list with the blogs who are credentialed, both the State Pool (released a few weeks ago) and today's release of the National Pool (both lists are combined in the above linked list.)

In the weeks and months to come we'll tell you more. Right now, all we know is GNB is on the list. Who from GNB is going, how much access bloggers will have, even where we're going to stay... the details are not confirmed. We're not going to talk till we have confirmed facts to tell you.

As people say when they're nominated for major awards or make it to the Show:

"We're just happy to be here. We're going to take it one day at a time. We hope we can help the Team. And the good Lord willing, it'll all work out."

This is THE BEST.
