KUSA — Reading this headline, you might think to yourself: “What year is it, 2008?”
It’s not, FYI.
But, one again, the Democratic National Committee is considering bringing the Democratic National Convention to Denver for 2020, according to NBC News.
The DNC also sent requests for proposals to Atlanta, Houston, New York, San Francisco, Milwaukee, Miami Beach and Birmingham.
The 2016 convention was in Philadelphia and the 2012 edition was in Charlotte.
But, for Denver’s purposes, you might still remember 2008. Barack Obama accepted the presidential nomination at what was then named Invesco Field (now it’s just “the place where the Broncos play”) in front of 84,000 people.
For what it’s worth, the last time Denver hosted the Democratic National Convention was 1908 … so given that the Mile High City’s being considered again, it’s clear we made a better impression.
Since it’s throwback Thursday, below, you’ll find some photos from the last DNC in Denver.
