McCaskill Concerned About St. Louis Nabbing 2012 Democratic Convention


Senator Claire McCaskill hasn't heard that St. Louis will or will not host the 2012 DNC convention. In fact, she hasn't heard a thing and the silence from the White House may not bode well.

"I wish I knew. I'm worried that I don't, to tell you the truth," McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch yesterday. "Because I would think by now that somebody would have given me some kind of glimmer of what is going to happen."

As the daily reports, the decision seems to be between St. Louis and Charlotte. Each city was expecting to hear something last week. Now a decision might not come until the end of the month.
