Dems choose Minnesota Monitor as state’s convention blogger

Democrats have chosen a blogger from each state to “participate” in the Democratic National Convention in Denver. And the winner from Minnesota is: Minnesota Monitor.

Howard Dean made the announcement today. Yeeeeaaaaahhhh.

About 400 individuals and organizations applied for the blogger spots at the convention. When applying for a spot, they had to “submit daily audience information and provide examples of posts that made their blogs stand out as an effective online organizing tool or agent of change, a demonstration of both the reach and impact blogs have had and will continue to have on the 2008 election,” according to a press release.

The Republicans also will give credentials to bloggers for the Republican National Convention, to be held in St. Paul Sept. 1-4. The RNC blogger deadline is tomorrow; then officials will look at the available space and identify who will get credentials, said Matt Burns, the RNC spokesman in St. Paul.

I’m thinking that Minnesota Monitor, unabashedly liberal outlet, won’t be tops on the RNC list.
