The Nation

July 20, 1986

Democratic Party leaders meeting in Washington chose three Southern cities among six finalists for their 1988 convention after hearing arguments that the party needs to recapture the once-Democratic South to win the presidency. Only two cities--Detroit and the Cleveland suburb of Brook Park--were eliminated from the preliminary list of eight possible sites. Still in the running, with the winner to be chosen by the end of the year, were Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, Washington, New York and Kansas City.
