Gotham gets GOP in 2004

Agreement to be hammered out with the city, mayor

WASHINGTON — Republican Party toppers on Monday said Gotham has won the competish to host the 2004 national nominating convention, a sure cost-saver for TV newsies based in New York.

First, though, a specific agreement must be hammered out with the city of New York and Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration. Once that happens, the Republican National Committee will take a final vote on the location.

“We believe New York will provide an outstanding backdrop to showcase our candidate (President Bush) and our party in 2004,” Republican National Committee chair Marc Racicot and Site Selection Committee chair Ellen Williams said in a prepared statement.

Republican confab is tentatively skedded for the week of Aug. 30, 2004, one month after the Democrats are expected to gather in Boston.

One news topper said that having a national convention on home turf would cut travel and hotel costs.
