Truly could not pick a better representative. From Ohio Daily Blog:
I’m proud (and rather overwhelmed) to report that I have been selected to be a part of the DemConvention State Blogger Corps, meaning that I will function as Ohio’s official blogger at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on August. I will be stationed on the convention floor, with the Ohio delegation, to represent our state in the DNC’s offical effort to bring new eyes, ears, and voices to the final stage of the Democratic nominating process.
Read the entire list of chosen blogs, state by state, here. Congrats to Tim at Crack the Bell (South Carolina). He came to Cleveland for the debate back in February and it was great fun exchanging emails with him, working to help him get here as the process for credentials unfolded. There are a few other names you’ll recognize, many you won’t.
I have no idea how many from Ohio applied, but according to Howard Dean’s statement, more than 400 applied for the 50 states and multiple territories. That week of the convention coincides with my kids’ first day of school and two out of three will be in new schools. I must say it’s been great reading the different blogger opportunities being offered through different networks I’m in (BlogHer and The Moderate Voice and The Media Bloggers Association included), but I’ll have to sit this one out.
Again, congratulations to Jeff. He works so damn hard – as do many of Ohio’s political bloggers, and I know from knowing him just how seriously he takes his charge. Thank you, Jeff.
