The DNC is allowing one blogger to sit with each state’s delegation.
“When our nominee for president of the United States takes the stage, members of the DemConvention State Blogger Corps will witness this historic moment from the best seats in the house, and in turn, be able to offer their dedicated readers back home a first-hand account,” says Daughtry.
Applications have been accepted since early this year. However, certain positions (which have not been revealed) only have one or two candidates.
To gain entrance, your blog must be at least six months old with at least 120 political posts. You also must provide some basic traffic information.
