Team Obama Sending Supporters to DNC

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign Friday solicited supporters to join an email list that will keep subscribers informed about the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. In return for signing up for the list, the campaign offered a chance to attend the convention for free.

Deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot, a native North Carolinian, wrote to supporters: “The campaign wants it to be an event not just for the 35,000 who will attend, but for the millions of people across the country whose values it will reflect.”

Smoot said people who sign up will “automatically be entered for a chance to join us at the convention in Charlotte less than a year from now. We’ll pay for your flight and hotel.”

In 2008, Obama accepted the party nod in the Denver Broncos’ football stadium in Colorado.
